Can I work remotely on freelancing jobs available on upwork.com if I am on F1-OPT, have completed my degree program, and have a full time job? Is there a minimum wage or time requirement for that?

Under F1-OPT, you can not freelance. It is not a work visa. It is an extension of your student curriculum. Your employer must be school approved and should provide feedback to the school about your on the job progress. People think OPT is a free pass to work. Newsflash: IT IS NOT !
