I am wondering if you can remove the Mac OS X partition to give the whole HDD to Ubuntu. Will it stop my computer from booting up? or will it work flawlessly?

I have a MacBook which is solely installed as Ubuntu. It works fine. I did this from scratch, but I don't think just removing the single main OS X partition will stop your system working. Single boot Ubuntu on a Mac is described here.
