Found larvae on top of a few frames along with comb and a bit of honey. Is this drone brood?

Typically yes, especially if you use plastic foundation. The bees have no where to make drone comb with rigid foundation, so they make it in between the frames. Sometimes it might be a swarm cell, gotta be careful of those.
