Should I trim the plant now, prune it or just leave it alone? I did note some branches brown and wondering if I should cut those off too.

While most pruning is done in spring, it will not hurt to give it a trim as long as you plan on keeping the plant inside over winter. You can trim as needed but no more than a third. You can remove any dying or unsightly growth anytime. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/tips-for-pruning-hibiscus-plants-when-to-prune-hibiscus.htm
