    It does not exactly work like that. To be precise, while your old domain's backlink will still be associated with it, the link juice will be redirected to new domain. It's almost the same thing as your new domain having those backlinks, but you cannot say that your old backlinks will be added to your new domain. In short words, if you are redirecting old domain to new one, then everything is fine. Don't worry.

    Don't forget you need to redirect every page of your old site - not just the homepage

    It is important to make sure few things before doing this such as should do a proper 301-permanent redirection old to new domain. And make sure old website is not penalize or have low quality, spam links that can harm the website after redirection.

    If you do it properly according to Google's webmaster suggestion, then all the properties that your existing website has will be redirected to the brand new website in 3 to six month. All the backlinks will also redirect to new pages. However, you have to apply one to one redirect from existing pages to new pages.
