1. right place ? Depends, /etc/rc.local is called once only at system boot up. Is that what you want?
2. To redirect the output

/root/to/run_script >script.log 2>&1

If you need the script to run a login time (instead of boot up time), then it makes more sense to put it into .bashrc or .bash_profile - rc.local is not the proper place for this, I guess.
