Keeping partitions while upgrading

I have Fedora-33 but I wanna use Fedora-34,
I did put some of my main folders like /home and /bin and /boot and /tmp in other partitions, so can I install Fedora-34 just on / drive for keeping my data’s?

You can just upgrade—you do not need to install a fresh. Please see this document:

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/dnf-system-upgrade/

If you do want to install afresh, you can do that too, and simply mount your partitions again as you did before when installing Fedora 33. /bin etc. are system partitions and will/should be formatted, though. /home and /var can be mounted without formatting since they’re meant to store user data.
