So the monitor is completely unplugged, so now the LCD connector and inverter connector are exposed. Can I turn on and use the laptop with an external monitor, or will the laptop be fried or shocked?

Why did you remove the LCD? It should be fine, as long as its set to boot up off the external monitor, otherwise you will likely just get a blank screen.
