If you have a device in a loop that's to be removed and splicing is not allowed what do you do? Pull back out the cables the run new cable from prev device skipping abandoned one to the next device? Thanks

Depends on the reason for removing it.

Does the box have to be removed as well or can I blank it up?

Depends on local rules, in MA a wire nut splice is fine, in RI it is prohibited.

You could install a terminal block. That is an acceptable method in many jurisdictions. Space Age Electronics has a nice product here.
