Removing Old Brick Chimney

I have an old brick chimney I never use (replaced furnace with 93% propane one--with the pipes out the side of the house). It goes from the basement and out the top of the attic of my two story house.
1. Is this a major source of heat loss?
2. If I decide to chop off a few feet (so it is below the roof--thinking of re-roofing) what is the best way to do this?
3. Alternatively I am thinking of capping the chimney. It's like an 8 inch or so sewer tile sticking out. Where could I get a cap?

Thanks for any advice.

I would just seal it from the basement & leave it.
