If you have a flickering refrigerator light due to a loose connection,
does the removal of the light bulb eliminate the threat of arcing?

Yes it does. It will remove the "load" from the circuit, which is what
would cause the arcing.

That would depend on weather the neutral OR the hot is arcing. If the
hot is arcing removing the bulb won't help.
