In SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence site I give access to some users as Visitor and I want them to not see some options and links like NewFeed, SkyDrive, Follow , Settings etc.

How can I hide these links and options to them?

Should I change the minimal masterpage in SharePoint Designer?

You can deactivate "Follow documents" feature in your site to remove Share and Follow links.

For SuiteLinks you can comment the following delegate control

<SharePoint:DelegateControl id="ID_SuiteLinksDelegate" ControlId="SuiteLinksDelegate" runat="server" />

For others you may need to add css/js, following link should help:
