Hi there,
This answer was taken from a brief of which I have included the link for as it has more information on your rubber tree.

"You can prune as you would any woody plant making your cuts just above a node, where the leaf is attached to a stem, or where another stem branches off. You can also prune just above a leaf scar, even though there is no leaf there any more. New growth should arise from the scar area."
