Deny knowledge of WiFi password to Comcast?

It seems that the WiFi password is easily accessible to Comcast in a number of apps, views and can even be revealed by SMS or over the public Internet.

Is there anyway to decline to let Comcast know my password?

Also, is it possible to configure a router level VPN on the combo modem/router and restrict all traffic to only the VPN IP?

Put your gateway in bridge mode, use your own router is the best way to keep that information totally private. You can’t add a VPN to the gateway
