In brief: Nope

Babies need to burp after feeds because they tend to swallow air with feeding.
Some babies do not swallow a lot of air and do not burp. You can put the baby on her tummy for 10-15 minutes at a 45 degree incline after feeds if you are concerned and see if that helps her . If she is not fussy or gassy, there really is not a problem.

In brief: Not usually.

Some babies are quiet feeders and don't swallow much air, so there isn't much to burp.
The type of bottle may also make a difference. Breast feeding seems to cause less burping in general.
