Does the total stats of a pokemon differ through generations?

E.g. Was Charizard's stat total always 534?

No, the base stats don't change through each generation to keep the game level. The only exception is in Generation 1 there is no differential between Special Attack and Special Defense, only one Special stat. In Gen 2 each pokemon got its own base Special Attack and Special Defense stat.

So about Charizard, from Gen 2 onward its stat total was always 534. But in Gen 1 it was 425 due to Special Attack and Special Defense being the same thing.
