You probably need to update your sitemap and re-submit to Google. Make sure the sitemap does not contain any of the bad links.
If you do find actual broken pages after going through Cd&'s steps above, you will need to write redirects to fix them.
is a great plugin that makes this painless if you are not an .htaccess guru.
If the link is broken in your own content, you need to find it and fix it right away...don't bother with redirection.
Nope. Presumably your sitemap contains good links and that's what Google cares about. What you don't want to do is serve up hundreds of bad links in the sitemap. Google will penalize you for doing that. Resubmitting a clean sitemap will actually help your SEO, not hurt it.

Don't change the publication dates (assuming this stuff is in a CMS of some sort). The sitemap should have accurate pub dates which would solve most of your problems.
