    Hello,
    Sorry for my English.
    If the battery on macbook pro with non-removable battery die, the computer can still work if the charger is connected?

    Have never tried it on a MBP but I think if you have your Mac Safe power connected it run as normal.

    Turbo Boost will probably be disabled, if applicable.

    It would certainly be advisable to have the battery replaced, as performance may be degraded by operating without the battery.
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    Doesn't the processor only run at half speed without the battery in place?

    Not half speed, but it is throttled.
