Whether are Relex couplings compatible with NEM 360 ones?

No if you talk about E117993 Märklin Telex NEM couplings. They keep on losing cars. They are excellent with Märklin KK (Short couplings).
My advice is for you to convert all your cars and locos to new couplings

I meant if Relex couplings are compatible with standard DC H0 couplings. In particular, is it (technically) possible to haul the old 4035 car set on DC wheels by the locomotive from this PIKO starter set?

The Relex couplers are compatible with standard Nem 360 couplers. But the nem 360 couplers that come with other makers can vary quite a lot in shape and size, and quality, and also the socket height can vary slightly so that coupling and uncoupling can be hit and miss.

Yes, I have experienced the same. On a level track, they usually stay coupled. On grades, not always. One feightcar in a 10 foot long train let go a while back. Half rolled back down off a bridge and crashed. I found every piece that came off cars on the floor with a light.
