My list is short and has two things:
1) One can not remove links one has placed and 2) one should not change the title tag. Is this correct? Are there other "rules"?

Not totaly sure I understand your question. In short you can make any changes you need to in order to optimise your page. Lets say you have a page with a bad title and lots of randon outgoing links. You should realy fix the title to be more relevant and trim the links down to include mainly relevant links.

There is no rulle stating you cant change titles or remove links. it's your page :)

If one removes and ads too often links one can change connecting Page Rank. If one changes too often the title tag it can be seen as an attempt to get multiple search engine indexing for the same page.

My rule of thumb is to make only absolutely necessary changes on a pages that has been indexed. Obviously you can delete a link, for instance, if that page is no longer there, but I see no other reason.

I am also not sure about the title tag. I think in some cases it may be necessary to change the title tag because the content changes. For example, Drug A is being developed to Drug A is being tested to Drug A is now approved by the FDA.

I think there are no rigid rules as such -- it is all about doing what is right for your reader.

I'm not so sure about the links thing, or else sites using RSS feeds would be very upset. My site has an RSS feed on the homepage that updates daily and only shows the 10 most recent stories. So every day, it adds 1 new link and removes 1 old one. I've only noticed positive results from the additional longtail keywords the content of the feed produced.
