Should I remain friends with him?

It's up to you. I'm not one to keep exes around as friends as that wasn't their purpose. Also it makes it easier to get with someone else as they are more at ease when you don't have exes lurking around to make them feel secure. However I never went out with a friend then turned them into something more.

It's entirely up to you. If you're alright with being friends with him, then by all means.
But if it hurts you and makes it hard for you to move on, then maybe not :(
His reasons for wanting to break it off seem very reasonable, but that doesn't mean it makes it any easier. I'm sorry you're hurting :(
