Default Removing separate oven/cooktop questions

I have a honey-do that involves removing an old gas oven from a wall
cabinet and a cooktop from a counter, and installing an integrated
range. The wall cabinet will be turned into a pantry, and the
countertops will be eventually replaced, so a gap in the countertop
isn't a major concern.

Can I just remove the oven? I'm guessing there's a ball valve on the
gas tap; just shut the valve, unscrew the (I'm assuming) corrugated
brass/bronze pipe and haul away. Right?

When removing the cooktop and making room, should I just cut the
cabinet at the appropriate width and cut a piece of plywood to fit on
the new end of the cabinet? Also, same gas line issues apply, right?

Anything else I should watch out for?

If you plan on abandoning the gas line to the oven, don't count on the
shut-off valve alone.
Put a plug in the valve where you take out the line to the oven.
Better yet, remove the line and plug the tee where the line goes up to the
oven.
This is code in most jurisdictions.

Thanks, Tom. Didn't know that.
