A good familiarity with vector calculus and basic linear algebra should suffice.

Hyperbolic geometry is ideally learned as an advanced topic in a course on the differential geometry of curves and surfaces in 3-space. So, the prerequisites are for such a course.

No, it is not necessary. Differential hyperbolic geometry is a subset of hyperbolic geometry, but definitely not the only part.

But in my opinion it would greatly enhance your understanding, and would be an extremely wise thing to learn either before or during the time you learn about hyperbolic geometry.
