It depends on what you want really, do you want them to raise a family?, in which case you should be very hands off and let them get on with things otherwise you will put them off and they could abandon the eggs.
If you want to bond with them and have two friendly sociable budgies you should remove the nest box and start the bonding process with them

No. Leave him to get on with looking after the nest and hen. If the cock is distracted, the hen will not be happy and will quite likely abandon the eggs. They are a bonded pair if they have gotten to the nesting stage, so in a way can be considered to not be separate entities.
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
