I never bother to take the time to remove labels from commercial bottles that I use. It doesn't have any impact on the beer that's in it, so why bother? If I need to identify bottles, I write a code on the cap.

I leave them on as well. I had heard that trying to get the labels off why soaking them could leach some of the label glue into the bottle, which would screw up bottling. I can't confirm it, only heard it.
