Blood potency increases over time as a Kindred gets older, that much is clear - but does the kindred have to be “active” for their blood to thicken, or will it continue to do so even if they’re in torpor?

No, a vampire must be active for his or her Blood Potency to rise. In fact, according to the description on page 215 of the Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition core rulebook, Blood Potency slowly drops while a vampire is in torpor.
