It’s March 6th and I’m in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Wondering if it was fine that I pruned off the foliage of my coral bells.

Coral bells are considered evergreen. Leaves that are ratty and brown may be trimmed but others should remain intact to allow photosynthesis energize the roots for new growth and flowers. I doubt you have killed your plant but may have affected bloom. Be kind to them this spring by watering during dry spells and lightly fertilizing once the weather settles down and you see evidence of new growth.
