You can't get enough yeast out of your beer to prevent bottle conditioning absent filtering the beer or killing the yeast. (note: within reason, of course. If you hit it with a triple dose of Biofine or something, maybe you'd have a problem).
I typically cold crash the primary, then rack to a keg. If I'm going to dry hop, I don't dry hop in the keg (since I want the beer warm when I dry hop), so I just rack off the beer warm, do the dry hop and cold crash on the last two days of the dry hop. The hops generally have settled out by then as has quite a bit of extra sediment. I then just rack off of that. I also brew up proportionally more beer based on the dry hop I'm going to do.
