Should these be clipped (cut) or just twisted off? Is one technique that is better than another? If they are cut, any tips?

Get a set of flush cutters. Like These

Makes cutting them out super easy and a really useful tool to have around.

Hobby knife or clippers work equally well. I would not try twisting off: you likely leave divots in some of the figures.

I use clippers personally, though sometimes I have to reach for the hobby knife as the distance between the sprue and figure is too tight in a few cases.

There were some strange connection points when I was assembling the set I got my hands on. Some points are very thin and twisting leads to higher risk of breakage. I would highly recommend clippers.

The flush cutters work best, especially when the connection is on the peg under the bases. Have a sharp xacto knife for the tight spots between the figure and the sprue. There are a couple of those. With those two tools you should not have any problems at all (always cutting away from yourself, of course).
