You can remove these if you want or leave them. Either way is fine and will not cause any issues with the tree. If you choose to take these pods off, these articles should help with pruning: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/pruning-crepe-myrtle-trees.htm

You don't have to remove those. They are the seeds, birds and squirrels like to eat them. The best way to insure good flowering is to water and fertilize properly. This article will help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/crepe-myrtle-care.htm
