If you leave the female in she may take care of the nest instead of the male. It has been documented that females can and will care for the nest. The tend to not be as good at it but it's better than nothing.

If the male isn't tending to the eggs, take him out. Either let the eggs be or move them and artificially hatch them

You say a few eggs did hatch? You probably have more fry than you think. Betta fry are excellent at hiding. As soon as the fry are swimming horizontally, it is ok to take out the male. IME, there are usually at least twice the number of fry than you think. If you see a few, there are probably many more. I think giants tend to have smaller numbers of fry, but their fry are capable of growing very rapidly with proper care. Good luck!
