4/4 vs 3/4 time signatures?

I'm new to music theory so I'm sorry if my question is trivial. Is it correct to say that, in practice, the only difference between 4/4 vs. 3/4 time signatures is where the accents are located? To me, 4/4 and 3/4 seem very similar, apart from the location of the accents.
