Hang on... you're asking if its "ok" to play 4ths and 5ths on the 3rd of the minor pentatonic? If so, then, yes, because the 4th and 5th of the 3rd are just the 6th and 7th degrees of the natural minor scale.
In general, yes, you can use any note over any scale in the right context. Use your ears, and if it sounds good, chances are there's a technical term for whatever you're doing.
How may The National D help you waste your time?

relative major and minor, the relative minor of a major scale starts on the 6th step of the major scale while the relative major of a minor scale starts on the third step of that minor scale

There's a technical term for everything, even things that sound 'bad.' Theory tells you to sound consonant, dissonant, however you want.

Using notes outside a scale is always OK, you'll have to use your ear to decide which ones to use. I'm not sure I understand the specifics of the question though.

If it wasn't OK you'd never see sharps, flats and naturals (accidentals) other than the key signature, I know there are other less common instances but I'm just giving a basic idea.
