Am I limited to specific business activities based on the type of LLC I formed?

I'm from New Jersey and I just recently decided to register an LLC and open a business bank account. When I registered the company I registered it as a web design and development company (I tried adding other business activities, but I guess you're only allowed to enter one). Same with the business bank account, they wanted to know the type of business the company would be involved in, so I told them the same thing when I registered the company as an LLC.

Even though most of my income comes from web design, I have also involved myself in other business activities like fixing clients computers and even selling products on e-commerce websites like eBay and Amazon.

I think in the future I will just stick to one service, once I figure out which one provides a more sustainable and profitable income. In the meantime though, I don't want to limit my self to just one source of income and I also don't want to register a separate company for each practice since I plan on sticking to one practice later down the line. I just went with the web design company first since that is what generates most of my income.

My question is, is it somehow "illegal" or could I get in trouble for providing different services or generating income that isn't necessarily related to the "type" of business I registered? (Web design)

In simpler terms, even though the LLC company was registered as a web design company, is it ok to use the same LLC company to provide other services NOT related to web design? Ex. fixing computers, selling on eBay, Amazon.

How about a business bank account - would I be violating any laws, rules, policies if I use the bank account to collect income that doesn't relate to the business activity? Even if the money is being made out to the company name? (I have a Wells Fargo account by the way, if that even matters.)

I hope my questions are not too confusing. I tried to be as clear as possible.
