Not a good idea to remove battery whilst alt is running, as it is the
primary load for the alternator. You may get overvoltage as the
regulator can only "regulate" if the battery is connected.
As has been mentioned below, the available volts are too low ... maybe
brushes, slip rings and associated joints need attention.
