While I know taking making any notes during a game is against the rules (and Wesley So was disqualified for this), does this include denoting the time usage after each move?

FIDE rules allow you to record the time:

8.1.4 The scoresheet shall be used only for recording the moves, the times of the clocks, offers of a draw, matters relating to a claim and other relevant data.


USCF rules also allow you to record the time:

20C. Use of notes prohibited. The use of notes made during the game as an aid to memory is forbidden, aside from the actual recording of the moves, draw offers, and clock times, and the header information normally found on a scoresheet.
