looks like forsythia- small yellow flowers cover entire stems in spring. If that is what it is, then yes, it can be pruned.

Most Forsythia have hollow stems, but just between the internodes. Not many others do.

Has your shrub flowered yet @bpowell ? Could you cut a stem and see if they actually are hollow? I think Nandina shows a lot of colour in the leaves. Do you know if your soil is acid or alkaline?

Have a look at this. Although the opposite leaves remind of Forsythia, I have a feeling that this might be a Euonymus Alatus. I believe they are quite common in your part of the world. What do you think?
Stems of this shrub are square with ''wings'' :unsure:
