In science work is defined as?
Work can be understood as a transfer of mechanical energy. It is defined as the product of force x distance (if a force is applied over a certain distance); this only applies if force is in the same direction as the movement, and if the force doesn't change. Otherwise, the more precise definition is the integral of: (dot product of force times distance).

Is work defined as force times parallel distance?
No. Work is transferred energy. When you do work, you are transferring energy. If the force is constant over time: Work = F*d*cos(theta) where F = force d = distance object travels over the time the force is applied theta = angle between force and the displacement of the object The only component of the force that can do work is the component of the force that is parallel to the displacement.

What is defined as force times distance?
Work is defined as the dot product of force times distance, or W = F * d = Fd cos (theta) where theta is the angle in between the force and distance vectors (if you are doing two dimensions). In three dimensions, use the standard definition for the dot product (using the component form of the vectors).
