Young chilli plants

Hello all,

I have some chillies that I grew from seed this year. They're Cayennes. I notice that they're now producing their first flowers, and I believe that these should be cut out to encourage more fruiting. Is that correct? 

Also, there are shoots forming above the leaves on the main stem. Should I cut these out, as I would with a tomato for example, or is branching something that should be encouraged?

Thank you!
