I wouldn't bother removing the molt. It will get disposed of naturally. And yes, if the blenny died, the crab would clean it up. As well as any other critters like worms and such you may have in the tank.

This is a good calcium supplement for any other crabs to eat or for itself to eat. It should be harmless in your tank.
