Can I put my Philodendron in a dark corner of my living room?

Your Philodendron Imperial could probably survive in a dark corner for a little while, but it certainly wouldn't thrive. I'd recommend putting it in medium or bright indirect light.

Why is my Philodendron losing leaves? I water it regularly and fertilise weekly.

You are killing your Philodendron Imperial with kindness. The plant is losing leaves because the roots are staying wet and never being allowed to dry out. Start by allow the soil to totally dry out. Once that happens, water well and then do not water again until the top 50% of the soil has dried out. Fertilize monthly when the plant is actively growing with a balanced food diluted to ½ the recommended strength. If the plant is not producing new leaves, it doesn’t need any plant food.
