Yes, you could. Technically, you could just no-show as you won't gain anything from canceling, but it's polite to let UA know you won't show up. It's generally advised to only cancel voluntarily at the last minute, as you could use a delay or a flight cancelation to your advantage to qualify for an involuntary cancel (i.e. get a refund).

Alternatively, since you're UA*G, you could also save money and SDC it two or three times, but read the wiki about that first.
