Just my opinion but here goes.
Unless there is some damage to a leaf, I never take them during veg.
Same for the first few weeks of bloom.
However, I do go through and take some of the larger fan or shade leaves later in the flowering cycle to ensure the light reaches the lower buds enabling them to grow and harden more.
About two weeks before the end I usually do a pretty heavy removal of the fan leaves to let the light hit the buds better.
