Your topic syntax is incorrect. The syntax has changed from the previous MQTT broker. Have a look at the MQTT publish to a feed documentation for the correct syntax. Make sure you enable the device to publish to the channel you intend in the MQTT devices section.

looks better! Did you add the channel to your MQTT device permissions? If so, I think it should work.
Do you have a paid license? If not, the interval (3 seconds) is too small, you can only publish every 15 seconds for a free license, and you would be wasting seerver time with the extra requests.
