You can disconnect the battery from the phone as long as it is booted, and plugged in.

You can hot swap the display itself but do not hot swap the Touch ID button - it will not work again. If you press and hold the lock and home button at the same time you can force the phone off, however it is fine to just disconnect the battery.
