I currently use "休憩時間" to refer to break time, however not sure whether it is correct. "break time" here is interval for rest/food etc. for employees, students etc.

休憩時間 is a correct and legitimate word for 'break time': It is used in the Japanese Labour Law (労働基準法). The word can also be used in a casual conversation.
