I haven't exactly seen much regarding this, but what's the best way to store a STANAG? Is it ok to keep BBs in it? And almost a full gas chamber?

Yes and yes, though in regards to the BBs you'd want to leave it empty though I don't seeing it damaging the spring that much leaving them in there.

I left BBs in one of my mags for about a month, and ended up ruining the spring. Now my bolt doesn't lock back because the spring is too weak to hold up the little arm on the mag.
Bolt catch works perfectly in all my other mags.
I'll try to stretch it back out and see if that fixes it.

Well what's the best way to get them out without shooting them then?

A USB plug fits perfectly in the feed lips and pushes them out with ease.
