Is it better to directly remove the container or do I need to stop it first? I concerned because I do not want to lose any data. Thank you

Its always better to stop the container and then remove it using the remove command.

$ docker stop <coontainer_id>
$ docker rm -f <container_id>

Stopping the container and then removing it will allow sending SIG_HUP signal to recipients. This will ensure that all the containers have enough time to clean up their tasks. This method is considered a good practice, avoiding unwanted errors.
