Question about English (US)

The use of "that" at the beginning of the sentence confirming something in general. For example:

"He is a fine musician."
"That he is."

"I heard, she did something awesome."
"That she did."

How often is it used? Are there any rules for using it? Is it even correct, or just "technically correct", or "talking-with-your-buddies-only correct"?
