In the sentence above, shouldn't there be a particle after 最近? How come there isn't any?

Also, is there a difference between とても and すごく or are they simply synonyms?

最近 is a relative time expression, like 今日・昨日・明日, and so similarly is used without a particle to indicate the time of an event.

すごく contains more feeling.
とても is more natural in negative expressions
But yes, pretty much they are synonyms.
