It should be possible to reduce brightness with monitor keys or using keyboard.
Which hot keys are you talking about?

Unless I'm mistaken, hot keys won't work on an external monitor. You'll need to use the settings on the monitor itself to do that, unless you wish to use something like Redshift to do that, which I believe is pre-installed on later versions of Linux Mint. This program won't affect the backlight setting though.

Hope this helps ...
