You can prune these errant branches out; simply cut them slightly above a node (leaf scar) on the branch. I'd choose a node that is slightly lower than the rest of the foliage on the shrub. When you prune the branch you'll encourage the development of two new branches. If they start just below the rest of the growth, you'll hide the pruning cut, plus the new growth will help to keep the plant dense and compact. Best wishes with your landscape!
