In brief: HPV and no

Most cervical polyps are caused by some strain of hpv.
It is generally not recommended you do anything with them while pregnant, for fear of inducing a miscarriage.

In brief: UNKNOWN

I would not remove a cervical polyp during pregnancy if it was not bleeding.
It should be removed after pregnancy if still present. Most cervical polyps are benign.
