[SPOILERS]

HAL 9000, the sentient computer, has his memory cards and power source cut off. during the entire scene he is talking about how he can feel it, and his voice progressively gets deeper and slower as if running out of battery and eventually stopping.

There are no traditional or intentional jumpscares, but there are a few moments where the music comes in suddenly, or a loud piercing noise comes in suddenly. Neither of these are done to scare the viewer.

No hospitals, but there is a scene featuring hospital equipment (the type that beeps and shows a screen full of wiggly lines to show that the patient is alive).

This one is a little hard to answer because characters do change physical appearance, but off-screen, and the film doesn't even hint that they change physical appearances either. Rather, one moment they look one way, the next moment they look different, instantaneous and off-screen like nothing happened.

While the shaky camera lasts only for about 10 seconds and more towards the end of the film, it shakes with increasing drastic intensity. The camera during the rest of the film is rather smooth or static.

In a sense. When Dave is in the pod at the time he's attempting to retrieve Frank's body, he's looking out the front oval window. But the camera angle is such that he's looking directly at the camera lens, while it's intended to appear that he's looking out of the window. It's not as though he's acknowledging the 'audience' but it appears as though he's still looking directly at the camera lens.
