Do I need to plug the BT homehub into the master socket?

The master socket for me is hidden in a cupboard far out of the way. Or will using another BT socket just result in slightly slower speeds but still okay to use?

 

Also does the BT TV view box have wifi capability? Or will I HAVE to use a cable between the box and BT homehub.

as long as you don't have and SSFP master then you can use any socket with a filter  you may well find speed is not as good as conencting to master

You are always best to connect to the master socket. You can always try an extension socket but as you have said, you may lose some speed but it may be worth the trade off.
