Pruning Plum trees

I live in a cold country “Sweden” and it can get as low as minus 15 in winter. My plum tree is quite young but the branches are not so strong and tend to bend a lot when carrying fruits. How should I prune the tree?
When is the best time to do it?

thanks for your advice.

Regards Selly
