Not necessarily. Improvement can come from many areas that don't involve changing your technique - increased fitness, improved mental health and of course practice practice practice.
Yes, 100% necessarily. All of those things you mentined are still fixing things. If you don't change anything, you won't improve. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is just a cliche that applies to something you don't want to improve. Assuming the guy wants to improve (which is a safe assumption, considering he's asking the question) then he will have to fix something.
What exactly does "practice, practice, practice" improve anyway, if not technique? He's asking a technique question in the technique forum. He obviously wants help with his technique.
