Re: cables

Sounds like a splitter, so should be safe to remove. A photo would be helpful.

Re: cables

Ideally the unused ones should be ‘capped’ off with a terminator to stop signal reflections, but what’s on the other end of the cables? If nothing (and let’s be honest, there probably isn’t), then yes just disconnecting them won’t make any significant difference.
