I'm very new to this and only started putting in ads in my app, so please bear with me. I'm trying to stay within the guidelines and terms of use. I just have two quick questions

1. I sometimes have two devices, can I simply use the code for eg:

AdRequest adRequest = new AdRequest.Builder()
    .addTestDevice("AC98C820A50B4AD8A2106EDE96FB87D4") // My Galaxy Nexus test phone
    .addTestDevice("AC98C80571ABCDEF5157070707070707") // Tablet
in order to register both devices as a test device?

2. Is it "safe" to leave the test devices lines of code in a release version to by published on google play. Sometimes I forget to remove the code when exporting to google play.

Yes, you are doing it the correct way for registering both devices. 
Also, if you test on Emulator, you can add


Secondly, It is completely safe to leave the test devices lines of code in a release version. You don't need to remove it. I have seen, that whenever I download my app from Google play on that particular device ( which I have added as test device), only test ads are shown. So, I can use my apps without worrying.
And on other devices, real Ads are shown.
