Alter the Status Bar to show Word Count of section

I have a Daily Note Template where I’d like to write 750 words in a particular section (between two H1)
What API queries could I use to alter the status bar to add “Words in Section: ###”, and what API query could I use to check words in the current section?
How do I keep this value updated?

Thank you!

The better word count plug-in would be a good reference for altering the status bar.
