Abandoning drain and supply lines


I am in the process of removing a bar with a sink in my basement.

The ABS drain goes into the floor and has a vent stack that goes up through the ceiling. I believe the vent stack services only this drain. What is the best way to abandon the drain? Should I just cap it off? How do I abandon the vent pipe?

The PEX supply lines to the sink each have their own control valve at the manifold. Should I just turn off the valve and leave the pipe in place?

Cut the vent and waste lines where you want. Glue permanent caps on the ends
Terminate the pex lines near the manifold. I don't like to leave stagnate water lines in place.
