I could not reproduce the link issue mentioned in this issue. It was most likely fixed in a later version of Word 2016.
Please ensure that MS Word is updated to the latest version. Either from the Ribon -> File -> Account, or in the Windows Store.

However, The first problem mentioned in this issue is now addressed by pr #8569.

Actually, the braille display will still show "Document1 - Word Document1 Document1 doc" after #8569 is merged. You just don't see it by default.

I wonder what the root cause of this problem is and if it can be addressed.

It sounds to me like there is something in the focus ancestry that should be treated as layout rather than content. This is also an issue with speech.

Input: kb(laptop):alt+tab
IO - speech.speak (20:48:32.415):
Speaking [u'Document1 - Word']
IO - speech.speak (20:48:32.515):
Speaking [u'Document1 - Word']
IO - speech.speak (20:48:32.555):
Speaking [u'Document1']
IO - speech.speak (20:48:32.558):
Speaking [u'Microsoft Word Document  edit  multi line']
IO - speech.speak (20:48:32.625):
Speaking [u'page 1  section 1', u'blank']
