Tangential electrical question by HTownND

I replaced a light fixture that used to use two light switches to control the lights. One turned on half of the neon bulbs, and the second turned on the other half. It's now just one light switch for the entire fixture. I've capped off, and taped the wire in the ceiling.


1) Is this enough, or do I need to do more
2) Do I have to cap it behind the switch, get a new plate that only has one switch?
3) Do I need to actually go to the fuse box, and pull the wire back?
