Hi Dude,
Yes cutting a branch of a Juniper where there would be no foliage left, the branch would surely die back. Option "C" would be your best bet - also for the chance for 'A' to back-bud.

Hello,
I would cut back that area 'C' you point out in the illustration to a single branch.  This is admittedly a hard choice, and it will leave your tree looking a bit like a 'plucked chicken'.
But, that's what I would do.
This shows the conflict of future development and long term gains, versus the short term effects (and better looking tree, initially) of less drastic decisions.  I believe that choosing the long-term approach will enable your tree to look much better in the future, then it would if you just selected short-term, immediate gains.
