May an F-2 visa holder marry inside the US with a US citizen/green card holder without ending the previous marriage?

No.

Yes. If you are married in one place, you are married everywhere (barring some edge cases like polygamous marriages). You can't just go to another country and consider yourself single. You need to divorce before you can marry again. If you are residing in the US, you may be able to do the divorce in the US.
