You can remove NICs from a virtual machine.

You cannot remove the primary NIC if it is connected to a VCDNI-backed network. If you reconfigure a virtual machine's primary NIC to connect it to a different network, the virtual machine will lose network connectivity if the new network has a different IP configuration (subnet, netmask, gateway, etc.). To restore network connectivity, open the virtual machine console and change the network settings.

You do not need to power off the virtual machine to remove a network interface.
