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.
