1.As ocnbrze said, you can use terminal to see if you are rooted or not, or you can also do that by getting any app that requires root and run it, if it runs then you are rooted.
2.There are unrooting zips also just like the rooting zip to unroot the phone.
3.You don't want to get rid off all those 3 apps, you can delete root validator its not an important app but keep either superuser or superSU in the phone, you can delete any one, but don't just uninstall them there is usually an option inside to remove them safely(its there in superSU, not sure about superuser). These 2 apps makes sure no app gets access to your root system without your permission, you have to grant the permission when the first time you run an app that requires root access.
