1. Yes, you are correct that a person having refugee statue, and a limited leave to remain, can bring his wife to join him from Bangladesh. She can then live and work in the UK for as long as his limited leave to remain lasts.

2. If your wife is currently in the UK with you, then you make an application for FLR(M) for her to continue to live in the UK with you. Here is a link to the form and the guidance notes https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/application-to-extend-stay-in-the-uk-as-a-partner-form-flrm
