DNS is built on top of the Internet, which is the IP bit.

An internet is any IP network. The Internet is the big one.

Incidentally, IP is the underlying protocol, both TCP/IP and UDP/IP (which is what DNS mostly uses) are built on top of that.

Correct, however, I would claim that in common use, "the Internet" means the combination of TCP/IP (and related protocols) and the DNS system.
