When you change your gamertag, it'll update on your friend's consoles too. So they will still have you on their lists. It also won't affect any games or anything like that.

I don't know about that one. You could also change your settings so you always show as offline, but that would show up for everyone on your friend's list.

You could delete them as friends then change your gamertag and they couldn't find you because they wouldn't know your new name. Then you can also set your privacy settings so that they couldn't tell if and when you are online. When you just delete a friend they don't get a notice. Their friend's list is just one person smaller.

 

When you change your gamertag you keep your gamesaves.

It automatically updates it to your friends list, but you may have to message them that you did so, since a lot of my friends do to pre-warn me.
