After the growing season and the plants die etc., is it best to pull up the roots, shake out the dirt or just break off the dead stems and leave the root ball in the ground?

Remove as much of the roots as you can, generally the root system and root ball will pull up quite easily.

You can loosen more stubborn roots with a small shovel.
