Can two Access Points communicate with each other ?

Maybe... Older Access Points could only communicate with wireless clients, however, newer Access Points often include "bridging" mode, which can be used for Access Point to Access Point communication.

Note that multiple Access Points can also be set in the same WLAN to increase coverage.

In addition to Bridge mode, some advanced wireless routers can also operate in "Station" mode where they act as a regular client computer towards the remote access point (which doesn't need to support bridge or have special configuration). The router can be configured with NAT to provide access to the remote AP's (different) subnet or the Internet. While in station mode, an AP will not accept other clients.
