Do we remove the handles from a coffin?

No. This comes under the strict guidelines mentioned above. Coffin handles on a coffin that will be cremated are made of either plastic or some other combustible material, eg wood, so it is not necessary to remove them. For burial, handles can be made from plastic, wood or metal and again it is not necessary to remove handles as they actually aid the burial process.
