Will likely be working on a Frankensnare project here shortly.

Would you anticipate any negative issues if a snare drum didn't have a vent, or the vent was plugged?

I'd vent it , J. I think if you see how much a drumhead can move when struck, it makes sense for the air to escape (due to less air space), and then get sucked back in when the head goe's back into its normal position.
Check it/.
