No. Simply NO. You cannot work under a X visa. If you want to work get a Z visa. If you are caught you can kiss your Uni goodbye here and maybe ban imposed from entering China.

It is NOT legal to work with an X visa. If you want to work legally, you have to get the Z visa.

As a student with an X type visa, you are ONLY allowed to work on an internship sponsored by the school where you are studying, and the school must be approved to provide such package. 

Any other type of work, for pay or for free, In Guangzhou or elsewhere in China, requires you to have a work visa (Z), plus within 30 days to enter the country obtain an FEC, a work and a residence permits from the proper authorities.  Only then you will be totally legal to work in China.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
