I would only suggest removing leaves that are completely dead, as it is still pulling nutrients out of those and back into the plant. After they are completely withered, you can remove them.

I don't know which elephant ear that you have, so I will include an article that will help you to determine which that you have. This will give you an idea of the proper care of the specific variety.
