    Nope. I've seen pretty popular site with only Pagerank 1 or 2. Best ways to improve pagerank (IMHO)

    1. Quality/unique content
    2. Time
    3. Links from youtube, wikipedia, facebook, google+, twitter, delicious, digg, stumbleupon...
    4. Good meta-description, page titles, h1, h2, h3...no keyword spam.
    5. both XML and HTML sitemaps
    6. page size. smaller, faster = better ranking
    7. name your pictures (both alt tag and image name)
    8. don't over do the SEO. Let the time go, rather than trying to change everything too often.
    ...

    try your site with website analyzers like woorank (free), to see if you have missed something.

    Not directly, but if you have more visitors to your website people will maybe link to your website that would increase your PR.

    Google also looks at time on site, pages per visit and bounce rate as indicators of site quality now, so buying hits is not a good plan.

    Well, having a lot of visitors as I understand is not a direct factor to improve PR but I can tell you by experience wich is good to improve it:

    1. Try to improve your on page optimization
    2. Start building links from High PR Blog Networks. (This way I went from pr N/A to PR3 in just 1 month with one of my sites)

    The only thing traffic will have an effect on is your organic search ranking for the keywords people are using to find your site. It also strengthens your backlinks from referral traffic. Every time your website shows up in search results and someone clicks on it and stays on the site, Google will place more value on your site for being relevant to that keyword. Every time someone clicks on a link to your website from another website, Google will trust that link and it's anchor text more and will also give you a boost in organic search rankings.

    The answer to your question is that noone can be 100% sure of Google's algorithm but as Wink0r said, Google probably measures Time on Site and Bounce Rate as part of their factors

    I think traffic to the site with less bounce rate is helpful for the ranking. because it shows the page popularity and quality.
