You can't remove the battery, at least not without potentially causing physical damage and definitely voiding the warranty. Reboot it. Hold the power switch for 30 seconds. You might want to have a peek at your user guide.

It won't hurt but I don't think it's necessary unless the battery is very low.

ETA: If the battery is low, charge it fully, preferably from an A/C outlet rather than a computer USB port.
