In brief: You can

Yes you can walk and jog unless it is uncomfortable.
If you are having symptoms or the hernia is large you will need to have it surgically repaired. You should absolutely not do any heavy lifting greater than 10 lbs. Nor any abdominal exercises before and for 6 weeks after repair.

In brief: Absolutely

There are no physical restrictions with any hernia, except for the amount of discomfort one does or does not have.
You may lift, work hard , even work out. However, in the time immediately after a repair, your surgeon will give you temporary restrictions. Good luck.
