It would be safer to drain your whole loop, but you don't /have/ to. I've just used clamps on my tubes before when I wanted to take out a res, and it worked well enough.
As for the bolded part, I've done it before. What coolant do you have? Usually distilled water is cheap as hell, so there's really no point. I did it because I had Mayhems X-1 mixed in with some dye, so there was about $30-$40 worth of stuff in my loop. If it's just distilled water then don't bother, as it's cheap... REALLY cheap, if you have any notable amount of money in the coolant (Such as a premix or concentrates) then yeah you can, it's just not typically recommended.
