That is a pickle. I dunno why you're so concerned about the battery. I would replace the lock/power button. Then either do a force restart or put it into dfu mode. Who knows. Maybe even disconnecting and then reconnecting the battery might even do the trick

I don't think so without disconnecting/reconnecting the battery, but if you're going to get as far as taking the screen up, you might as well go the whole way and replace your lock button/volume button/mute switch flex cable. It's not too hard
