Has anyone replaced the master cylinder? If you have could you offer some advice on what to do or pictures?

The master cylinder is leaking and I will be replacing it shortly.... Brake pedal goes to the ground. Do I need to bleed the ABS system also and if so I have no idea what to do. ..

I replaced all of my lines without doing any special ABS bleeding procedures.

Do you bleed the system with the car running or just keyed on?

I just gravity bled it, then did a 2 person bleed by pumping the brakes. I don't even remember having to turn the car on.

You're supposed to bench bleed the master before you install but I didn't do that either.
