Does removing all the strings at once ruin the guitar or is it just a myth?

why would it?

No, it doesn't. Is it even a myth? Thats just bloody obvious that it won't. I mean long long long run, then maybe a bit, otherwise? No.
total myth. when i restring i remove all the strings, not everytime, just when the fretboard needs a good cleaning. its not recommended to take off the strings and let it sit for a month, but no, restringing won't make your guitar die
