To my knowledge, most MacBooks won’t turn on without a battery, if it’s not removable without unscrewing the bottom case. I speak from experience with a Mid-2014 MacBook Air

You do need a new battery! MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Mid 2018-Early 2019) Battery

But! You likely have a second issue within the logic board as your system shouldn’t have pushed the battery to the point of failing. This gets into the power & SMC logic needing to be checked.
