Trying for the first time to keep my tropical hibiscus through the winter. Should the plant be cut back? And does it need direct sun?

You can trim it back, but save any major pruning for spring. This article wil help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/tips-for-pruning-hibiscus-plants-when-to-prune-hibiscus.htm
Need to keep in the groung and cut all the way down and cover with mulch,if it's to tall the branches freeze right into the root if it gets into teens and 20s,same with mandavilla vines ,angel trumpets etc. Anything tropical!
