Yes the vents are there to help convection. I'm considering putting a kind of chimney on top of my next case (zero fan) i'll use a square hole and the lian li V-series back 'cache' (the thing that's placed behind the back 120mm fan) placed over it. Don't put a straight uncovered hole up there or you'll collect dust...
