Any issues with plugging heater lines?

I'm gearing up to install my AC set up and my first step is to make room. I would like to remove the old heater core and plug the coolant lines that supply it. Will that cause any issues with the cooling system? Or should I connect them to each other?

Thanks

Oscar

Connect them too each other to allow the water to flow round the engine.

Makes sense, I was just being lazy not want to track down an appropriately sized splice but I guess I can just hack it off the old heater core since its coming out anyway.
