Burning Bush

Not all of the burning bush branches leafed out this year, probably due to drought. Should the bare branches be pruned or leave until next spring?

Yes, you can remove the bare branches, since this will encourage the bush to produce new growth, and those branches may be dead anyway. You can remove those branches now or in the winter or spring. Other pruning on the burning bush should be done in winter or spring. Here is more on how to prune burning bushes:
