This is correct. The only purpose of the battery is to manage the time elements with an internal clock.
Sorry, I got the info that it *would* delete the save data from a tutorial myself. I'll do my best to find it and post the source.

No. I know this from multiple guides and experience. Removing the battery will delete your saved file.
