Is there an easy way of removing these two faces at the same time as I extrude to make them overlap each other? I also would like the coinciding edges (and vertices) to merge. I am using Blender 2.8 if it matters.

If I understand you correctly, you want a hole through the mesh. Before you extrude, turn on snapping to vertex. Snapping to vertex Now extrude and snap to one of the vertices of the back face. This way the faces will be exactly overlapping. Now just delete them with X. At the end do Remove Doubles from the Vertex menu. The vertices will be joined.

Cutout example

Another way is Bridge Edge Loops command (in 2.8 is called the same as in 2.79, Ctrl+E). The operator connects 2 edge loops (in this case those which were forming faces) and remove those faces which become redundant.

Default settings of the operator fit well for this case, Open Loop, no merging.
