    BB removal. Is this universally true?

    Left (non-drive side): counter-clockwise to loosen, clockwise to tighten.

    Right (drive side): counter-clockwise to tighten, clockwise to loosen.

    Universally true?

    Not universally true.

    Scroll down to "Bottom Bracket" and see Sheldon's explanations of the various standards.

    Providing I avoid French, Italian, and Swiss standards I should be ok.

    The vast majority of modern bikes are as you describe.
