By all means you should strip out your font and size from the formatting when you convert to an ebook format. Most ereaders have their own specially chosen font and it's best to respect that to give the user a consistent experience. Many can't even display your font of choice even if you embed it, so it isn't worth embedding.

I write in Word and save as filtered HTML. Then I pull out any spurious span tags (Word is terrible about those), remove the @font-face style declarations, and in all my styles I remove the font family and replace it with something generic like serif or sans-serif. When I did my last book I did leave the sizes intact, but I think it's safest to remove them entirely and only use relative sizes (e.g., font-size: 120% for a chapter heading) as needed.
