You should be aware of the SharePoint 2013 SP1 does support installing .Net 4.6 onto an existing SharePoint 2013 farm server.

But you may face an issue if you try to install SharePoint 2013 on .NET framework 4.6 . and this issue is now solved as mentioned at SharePoint 2013 installer now supports .NET Framework 4.6 and above

For more details check SharePoint 2013 and .NET framework 4.6


What about installing .Net 4.6 on the SharePoint database servers? .Net 4.6 is required as a part of installation for Power BI report server.
