Such as the dip or pull up, do you think that muscle will be put on like I am using weights themselves? Right now I can do around 10 dips and 7 pull ups without weight, which I figure is good enough. In the past, I have just put some weights and dumbells in a bookbag that can hold some serious weight and do the upper body movements with them. For my legs, I do single leg split squats. The reason I am asking is I do not have access to a gym right now, but still want to keep in decent shape!

Yes, just add weight as needed.

If you can do more than 12 reps per set in an exercise, you are building muscular endurance more than strength. At 10 reps max for dips and 7 for chins using bodyweight, they still count as strength-building exercises.
