I have allways taken honey from brood frames. It depends if it is worth doig. If frame has open larvas, do not take them. If all are capped, you can extract the honey. If frame has a lot of pollen, it is no use to exctract it.
If honey is uncapped and bees do not get honey outside any more, it is better take away. Uncapped honey has too much water and you can dry it if you put in the little room, where you put thermostate managed 2000 w warming with propeller air mover,. If you give 2-3 days 35 C "dry air handling", exrta water is gone. In the room it must be a little ventilation. I have warming champer for honey before spin, and it dryes upp too much if it is 5 days in the champer.
To put honey outside is not good at all. Bees lick honey from combs, if you put tha box on the top of hive and youi close all entrances taht no robbers can go in.
If you put honey in the open space other bees fron the distance 1-2 km will come to rob combs and you get a mesh. Also your own bees fights against each other and that is not good at all.
And afteter robbing all honey just give 15-20 kg sugar for winter :D
Do not think bees' emotions, they are slaves, not your lovers.
I live into hive about 5 kg honey for winter and give 20 kg sugar. Our winter is at least 2 moths longer than your in USA. Just now we have had a little bit frost here all the week.
