refs/for/ is  gerrit's special path for review requests (like
refs/heads/ in plain git). That part should be kept literally. So of
course you also need that for all gerrit pushes.

<release-branch> is typically master, if you are not fixing bugs in one
of the older releases (which is main used by the core).

<topic> is optional: it allows gerrit to group requests. That is usefull
in case of multiple commits or if you are working on a patch for
multiple versions.

If the commits really are one logical change, think about rebasing and
squashing the commits before pushing.
