Google Maps and Openstreetmap are separate maps. Google is money making company. Openstreetmap is generated,mapped and maintained by volunteers for free. Openstreetmap does need some money to pay for storage and some admin. You can I believe add stuff to Googlemaps but adding it to openstreetmap does not add it to Google Maps although it may get seen on OSM and then get mapped onto Google. NOTE We must not copy anything from Google. It is against their terms and our rules.

If you want to update Google Maps (which I occasionally do) you have to submit a change request, which they may or may not action.

You can't update the mapping (as in adding in paths and woods and buildings) like you do in OSM but you can change the labels or add missing ones. I've done this where a major landmark name was missing or misspelt for example.
