Yes: The testis makes sperm in the millions on a continuous basis.It is part of the grand design that we have a few paired organs like lungs,kidneys & testes. We can do okay with just one, though we would rather keep both.

Yes: Sperm analysis will give the final answer whether its possible or not and how? If near normal volume, count, motility and shape of sperm then natural intercourse maybe enough. If severe sperm abnormality, pregnancy is still possible through ivf. If severe sperm abnormalities, consider freezing one or two sperm samples as backup.
