You can definitely open separate accounts on you & your wife's name. On taxes front, you will have to pay taxes as per the tax bracket you fall in.

For example, if your speculative income for the FY 2015-2016 is 4 lakhs, this will be added to your salary & you will be paying taxes on overall income. Lets say, your salary is 10 Lakhs, so net income on which you will have to pay taxes is 10 Lakhs+ 4 lakhs ( speculative income). Since 14 lakhs wall in 30 % tax bracket you will pay 30% taxes.

Similar is the case with your wife also. To get more details on taxes on speculative income, read this LINK:
