If you aren't having any symptoms (diarrhea, bleeding, etc.) you would be considered to be in remission, yes. I'm also on Remicade, and my GI let me stop the Imuran at my last visit 4 months ago because there is some increase in the incidence of certain cancers in people taking both medications. Actually, he gave me the choice, because he still feels the risk is small, but I only want to take the meds I really need. So far, I'm doing fine without it.
I'd recommend you talk to your doctor about any changes in your meds. He knows what your history is and how you've responded to meds in the past.
Congratulations on a good C-scope report!
