I have a bench press at home and for switching up my chest workouts if on one day I just every now and then do 2-3 sets throughout the whole day during work breaks instead of one 45 minute session. Can that still get you hypertrophy?

Are you able to hit 75-80% without warming up ?

Hypertrophy's emphasis is on volume so yes. Example would be groupings of 10x10 conducted with 60 seconds of rest/set under medium load. If you're going the 2-3 set route still focus on maximizing volume vs intensity.
