No, not correct.
3G is just a moniker for "3rd Generation" wireless networks.
It doesn't automatically dictate a feature set or specifications.
EVDO (for CDMA carriers such as Verizon and Sprint) is a 3G wireless networking topology, but it does not support simultaneous voice and data.
HSDPA/UMTS (for GSM carriers such as AT&T) is a 3G wireless networking topology that does support simultaneous voice and data.
There's no such thing as "true 3G".
