In brief: Yes

Definitely rupturing it either purposefully or accidentally would cause sharp pain and perhaps decreased range of motion for a period of time.

In brief: Sometimes

Spontaneous rupture can be followed by pain.
The next question is how do you plan on rupturing it? The may be more painful that the cyst rupturing. See your doc and i'll bet he will hurt you less
