    You should keep it iMO, in case Google re-checks or you want to submit a manual index request. There's no harm to keeping it there. If google rechecks and it's not there, you'll lose data being collected in WMT until it's re-verified again.

    Yes you can! But remember it is needed to build you site cache. Google will not crawl your site unless you have this file. So it is more needed in case of submitting any manual index request.

    sorry for the bad communication. .what I was trying to convey is Yes you can remove the code. But google won't monitor your site anymore so one can't know the up's and down's of the site. If you want, You have to verify it again in any other method. According to a recent google search console update, if you are a property owner in google Analytics then the site will be verified automatically in the webmaster tool.
