    Both. They usually have their own separate story lines going, but what happens in one often affects the other. Sometimes it can be as small as a reference to what's happening in the other comic, like back when Batman R.I.P. was happening in Batman, a reference was made to the Black Glove causing problems in a Detective comics story. Sometimes they crossover and one story will continue in the other title, like during Knightfall, or more recently the Resurrection of Ras Ah Gul, but that's usually not the norm.

    To answer the question, yes they are the same continuity (the DC mainstream universe) but they usually tell separate stories.
