Yes, I think it is always a good idea to separate the two. However I am assuming that you are not going to report on millions of records. Otherwise you would not have asked this question.
If I am right you can host them on the same server. However I would have created a separate database just for reports. This gives you some flexibility. For example: you can put the database in a read only state. This helps a lot with performance and deadlocks.
If you want to chat more, let me know. Otherwise I apologise for the assumption.
