Can I not use "negative" in place of "minus"?

Maybe it's my mathematician bias showing, but I think you can. It's what I'd say. Reported.

Mathematicians may say "negative two degrees" and it wouldn't be wrong, but the vernacular is "minus two degrees".

That would be "moins que deux degrés": here, we're missing the "than" part.
