Can I use kingston ram and any other brand ram which are both DDR3 together? (Both also 4GB and 1333 MHz)
(My mobo is H61-N, which has 2 slots).

DDR4 with XMP is probably a no-go, but DDR3, as long as they support the same timings (Cas latencies) it should be fine.
You'll possibly get a speed boost from changing single to dual or dual to quad channel, but experience a performance penalty in having to set the memory modules to the lowest memory frequency or highest latency settings.
But it should still offer you a boost in performance.
