To score victory points each turn do you have to maintain a unit in the Victory Point hex, or is it good enough that you control the hex? So if I am the Axis do I have to keep a unit in Paris to score the points for it? What about your home country and Allied Minor Nations victory point hexes?

Control is all that is required.

To simplify....
If the Axis advance far enough and get a winning total on VPs and just hold 1 lousy city at the end, they win.
If the Axis are 100% conquered before end game they lose.
If the Axis just take France and sit there the rest of the game and in the end hold all of Germany.... they still lose due to lack of VPs.

The game rewards performance. I did the VP system this way to incentivize attacking. Too many World in Flames games where the Axis did the Sitzkreig strategy just sitting there. Zzzz boring.

You score whether you occupy or not as long as it is in the territory you have control of. Have to watch that control thing though because say Italy is the one who first took the VP hex they will continue to receive the VP for it regardless of whether a German unit is the garrison or one of the Axis allies. An oversight that usually cause Italy to wind the war every time.

Which means any any major campaign against a region with VP hexes (Africa, Greece, ...) include a German unit if you want to grab the VP hex from the Italians.
