I am planning on painting a bedroom which has caulk around door frames and skirting boards. Do I remove the existing caulk and how - before applying fresh caulk?

You only need to remove loose caulk, assuming we are talking about decorators caulk which gets painted over.

There should be no need to remove existing caulk unless it's failed.
