Yes it can lock up. Yes the belt will burn up. No it cannot feasibly be bypassed.

If it locks up while is is engaged via the A/C controls on the dash then you can try unplugging the electrical connector for the A/C clutch on the compressor. If it locks up without the compressor clutch engaged than its time for a new compressor. do'nt even consider trying to reroute belts and taking your compressor completely off as this can be a real pain and you might not find the correct parts to do it properly and safely.
