Q. Pruning Spent Flowers on Tropical Hibiscus

I recently purchased a tropical hibiscus and it had flowers and buds. I want to know if after the flower drops off, should I pinch back the end?

Q. Tropical Hibiscus

I’m looking after my neighbors tropical hibiscus which she transplanted into a bigger pot last November. This plant is in a glass roofed sunroom and I been noticing in the last month the leaves have turned brittle and have nearly all fallen off. I realise the extreme cold winter weather is not a favorite of this tropical plant. I tested a small branch and it is not dead, even though it looks like it is. My question is what can I do too help this plant recover, or will it die because of the freezing temperatures?
