How many years removed from grad school should one remove internship and academic experiences from resume and LinkedIn profile?

Treat your LinkedIn profile like a CV and always keep everything on there. For your resume, begin dropping grad school accomplishments as soon as you have a job. Keep internships for a while if they relate to your career field. If you interned with a consulting firm, leave it on there. However if you interned with an Investment Bank, and now you are in Consulting, it's not relevant, so cut it. The key is that your resume is an executive summary of your experiences, and it should never be longer than one page. So treat every word as precious.

I always keep my internship on because it was at Goldman. Even many years out of college that name has given me tons of opportunities I would not have

Depends, like P1 said some unrelated experience at big brand names helps. Interned at Goldman as well and I've gotten asked about it briefly in interviews. Definitely not a deciding factor but adds a bit more credibility.
