It's perfectly safe for your hardware to run without the battery. You should be aware however that should there be even the briefest interruption of power, you will lose anything you might be working on if you have not saved it.
Your MacBook will also run at nearly half its normal speed if you use it with the battery removed:
Regardless of the two issues raised above, you should not continue to use your machine with that battery installed. It is possible for the expanding battery to create enough upwards pressure to damage the logic board or to cause trackpad/keyboard problems.
