I see fields listed in the InfoPath 2013 Rule Inspector that I no longer have on the SharePoint list. As a result it's causing a validation error when users try to submit the form. Is there any way to remove the rules that are tied to fields that no longer exist (and are only visible on the Rule Inspector)?

As is referred in this post, you can remove the rules by modifying the source files of the InfoPath form (xsf) and deleting the related elements.
