If I stop using this structured data for any reason, will it break my site?
No, removing structured data is a safe process to do but you will lose the associated rich results.
The main issue I see is, that when people decide to turn off structured data, the code is rarely sanitized and therefore we see broken structured data and conflicting statements that generate validation errors. That should be prevented.
How to calculate the ROI of schema markup?
To calculate the ROI of schema markup you shall determine the business value for each transaction (i.e. the average product value for an ecommerce website, the LTV for a SaaS subscription), the conversion rate (the percentage of users that actually reach the goal) and the implementation costs required for adding and maintaining structured data. You can then look at the clicks by filtering rich results only and use the following formula [(Total # of Clicks x CV) x Business Value] – Costs. You could also do the same exercise ahead of time by looking at the monthly volume and the click-through rate of the queries where you believe, using structured data, you could position your content.
