Yes, you can completely remove and disable Notification Center in OS X Mavericks. Launch the Terminal app on your Mac (it's inside Applications > Utilities), paste the following command, then hit enter:

sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchAgents/ KeepAlive -bool false

Once that's done, paste this command and hit enter:

killall NotificationCenter

Finally, log out of your Mac and log back in to see that the Notification Center is gone.
