I got this pot of "lucky bamboo" in Feb this year and now one of the shoots has turned brown, what should I do? Shall I remove the affected shoot and replant the rest? Is there a way to revive the brown shoot? It is still turgid but has turned brown instead.

I grew the plant in water only in my office under a bright light.

I don't have an idea with lucky bamboo plant in office but I do believe in psychology. If there is no subsquent answer to your question, I suggest remove it entirely. Else it may affect your mood and subsequently work. Just my thought. :)/>

I too found that CNY stack up bamboo are pretty hard to take care indoor as they are packed together. Sooner or later one will rot in the centre and spread out.

No expertise here, but I gave my grandparents one for CNY and it's doing very well with no sunlight. I'm thinking it could be that they change the water everyday?

Changing the water everyday may not be the answer to your problems.
By changing the water everyday, you may disturb and frighten the plant.
Maybe you should do it once a week or when the water dries out.
A long as the roots are healthy, the plants should not turn brown.
Bright airy conditions is good enough for this cultivated bamboo plant
