Yes, the sentence needs "the" article for flu and winter.

Yes, it can, but need not, everyone gets flu in winter is the normal way to say it.

for those who might be interested, I just like to bring a nuance with the use of "thường xuyên" vs "thường". in the initial sentence "mọi người thường xuyên bị cảm cúm vào mùa đông", the speaker implies that a lot of people are sick during winter. if we change "thường xuyên" for a simple "thường", the speaker will then mean people are more often sick in winter in comparison to other seasons.
