Yes it is best to disconnect the coil, it will overheat if the points are closed
Disconnect the one that goes to the distributor then there is not a live wire lift dangling.

Why do you need the Ign on?
If it's just one circuit you're trying to work on, why not power it directly from the battery, via a suitable fuse of course.
I can't imagine what you're doing if you require the whole thing powered up....
