Yes, and it is a good idea to do so certainly for the first backup, as it will be huge (and very time consuming!) - subsequent backups are incremental, and I don't notice them occurring :)
I use an ethernet cable between the TC and my iMac, which is the quickest connection available. The WIFI serves the rest of the house, with a couple of Airport express' for Airtunes and extending the network.
