I always wondered if shaking the hose after the pump shuts off will coax a few more drops of gas out of the low point in the hose. Any opinions?

Yes, shut the pump off and squeeze the handle then remove it.

I do but that isn't the reason, the reason I do it is because I want to make sure the nozzle is done dripping before I put it back.

I do. Mostly just get a few drops but I have been pleasantly surprised with a steady drizzle, netting a cup or more on more than one occasion.
