    Well it's never wrong to continue building strong backlinks to your main URL, since this will also increase the ranking of your other categories, tags and posts.

    However if you really want to rank primarily for this specific category then you should point more high quality backlinks to the category URL.

    Second page of Google for what keyword? Your domain name/homepage keyword, a "money" keyword, etcetera?

    Depending on the type of website and whether or not your category pages are bringing in traffic (or being viewed), some people here would advise you to no-index your category and tag pages to avoid issues with duplicate content (this is not a penalty).

    Home Page:
    Actually google give preference to your category page as that contains exact keyword and more relavent content when compare to your homepage. If you think your category page able to attract the visitors and reduce the bounce then target that for the keyword alone, otherwise 301 redirect the category page to homepage.

    Don't target the same keyword for homepage and category page to avoid keyword cannibalism.

    i had almost the same, the page even not related to keyword was on page 2. you have to keep going building links, however i recommend use more natural looking anchors, not only exact keyword as anchor

    I would just continue building links to main domain and diversify anchor texts.
