Are you making a tone block or something to stop the trem from diving? If you just want to stop it then yes, you can leave the strings in.

The strings have nothing to do with it if the guitar has a fender style trem. Just take the back cover off and wedge a piece of wood in there and you'll be good to go.

thought you had to have the strings off to loosen the trem to fit the wedge?

you can just loosen the strings and maybe pull up a tremolo bar if you need more room.

It should fit really snugly as well. What kind of wood are you using?

I blocked my trem a few weeks ago. Used folded paper
Whoops!
It's quite stable though.
