No, if you follow the how-to, you'll build a development environment
which does all the compiling, and all the packages you build will be
build as binaries. Then when you install into the actual embedded
file system, it just uncompresses the binary package into the
specified directory, like this:
ROOT=/embedded_fs emerge -K mypackage
Since all emerge is doing (effectively) is untaring into the
directory, the includes within that directory are never used. So you
can safely remove:
But you obviously don't want to remove /usr/include from the chroot'd

Yeah, they are 0 bytes, but they clutter everything up. I think
the .keep files exist to keep programs from trimming empty
directories from a directory tree.
