I recently decided to buy the digital copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and I was wondering if the towns and everything else would be separate from the cartridge that my brother plays on.

For those asking why we don't play on the same game, I wanna be mayor of my own town.

It works the way you are hoping. The digital copy will use a different save file than the physical one, and you will both be mayors of two separate towns.
