If there's no outlet, something will pop. But keeping it unscrewed defeats the purpose of DIY CO2. You have the tubing going into the tank, right? As long as you have a cheap ceramic/glass diffuser, (or some other form of DIY diffusion) it'll work fine.

I will have an airstone, since I heard diy co2 isn't enough pressure for the glass diffusers. So keep it screwed tight and as long as it has a way out (the diffuser) it'll be fine?

Yes. But the cheapest glass diffusers will work fine. As will cigarette filters and bamboo chopsticks.
