At what point of the plant is the recommended place to remove spent flowers? Is it better to remove the whole stem or just ruboff the spent flower?

You don't really need to deadhead a gazania plant. It is one of those "self cleaning" perennials and the dead flowers will fall off all by themselves. If you want to deadhead, prune off the spent flower plus the stem, down to foliage level. Enjoy your garden!
