You can disable AD syncing in the azure portal. Once that is done, just uninstall AADConnect via add/remove programs, like any other peice of software.

Technically you can do this in any order, but I like making sure Azure AD reports accounts as cloud managed in the azure portal before uninstalling AADConnect, just in case things go sideways.
