Don’t have experience with this, but from what I hear you just need to keep improving your app and let the school know about it. Get your scores up, get a promotion, have an EC accomplishment, network with students, etc.

^^ Yes - I think you have to show your interest and contact them often to keep yourself top of mind

HBS seems to only want updates when they request it. Is it okay to send updates periodically without prompting or better to sit and wait for them to ask?

People get off the waitlist on a rolling basis so you can sit and wait but you may miss out on some of those first spots
