Wow. No, you need both cables on the battery for the vehicle to tun, and taking a cable off while it is running is potentially dangerous to you and to the vehicle. You can damage the computer and certain electronic components by doing that, including the alternator.

How do you know the alternator is not working? Did you measure voltage at the battery with the vehicle off and the with the vehicle running? The difference should be a volt or two, dependeing on the ambient temperature and condition of the battery.
