No. Just passing 70-513, all by itself, wil give you the certification "MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Service Communication Applications."
See "Credit towards certification" in http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-513&locale=en-us. Quote: "When you pass Exam 70-513: TS: Windows Communication Foundation Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4, you complete the requirements for the following certification(s): MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Service Communication Applications."

As Alberto stated, there is no pre-requisite for sitting this exam. That said, Microsoft does state:
The candidate works on a team in a development environment that uses Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 to build distributed applications. The candidate should have at least one year of experience developing Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)–based applications, including at least six months of experience with .NET Framework 4.
