In brief: Crown has to be out.

Any cavity or infection must be expose to air and drained, fast.
A close space will lead to major problem.

In brief: Remove tooth?

It is possible the root is fractured.
If the infection keeps returning, you may lose the tooth. Then, rebuild he bone destroyed by the infection, and get an implant supported crown.
