Does switching birth control methods (from patch to pills) increase your pregnancy rate? Or is it still low because I keep taking birth control

In brief: Same

as long as you have continuous, non-stop exposure to the sufficient dose of steroid hormones for birth control, you should not experience any decrease in the efficacy of your birth control.
however, the best forms of birth control are longer acting and include injections, implants, rings, and IUDs.
