Typically, the solder points on motherboard components are so small that only robots and people with mad skillz and small hands can solder the components onto the motherboard without shorting something out or overheating another adjacent, small component. As to whether the mobo should work without the battery bracket or not, that would likely vary from motherboard to motherboard, and no, it NOT something that is likely to be covered in the motherboard users manual. Only the designers of the motherboard would likely know the answer to that question, and they might not know for sure without trying it (they probably never thought to wonder on that question). It's definitely not *designed* to run without that bracket on there, but you may get lucky and it may work without it. But you probably just ruined your motherboard. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
