及(およ)び is a word that functions as a conjunction meaning ‘and’ or ‘as well as’, but is originally the conjunctive form of 及(およ)ぶ, an う-Verb meaning ‘to reach (A)’, or ‘to extend to (A)’. Although it is frequently translated simply as ‘and’, 及(およ)び is a grammar pattern that more literally reflects the meaning of the base verb ‘to extend to (A)’.
Being a conjunction, 及(およ)び will primarily appear at the beginning of a second clause of a sentence, or directly following a noun that something else is ‘in addition to’.
