Yes, you are free to distribute it and use it in your software:

LibreOffice is licensed under the terms of the LGPLv3. This means you're free to use it for personal and commercial use, you're free to copy it and give copies away, and you're free to modify and redesign the source code, and to create derivative works.

See the licensing FAQ.

Selling free software is perfectly acceptable. The only requirement is that you publish the source code of any modifications you make if you distribute them.
