The wallet shows that the transaction has not been broadcasted yet with 0 of 6 confirmations. My wallet is stuck on a block right now.

  • Is your question whether transactions can be broadcast without being in sync with the blockchain?

Yes, you have to wait. Otherwise you would be able to pay things with money you don't have in your wallet.

You could have spent all your bitcoins, but since your wallet is not synced you may be able to spend money you have already spent but has not been synced, thus it is not allowed to do that.

  • That sentence is somewhat ambiguous: "Otherwise you would be able to pay things with money you don't have in your wallet." Obviously his transaction wouldn't be accepted by the network, as it would be spending UTXO that don't exist, so no, he wouldn't be able to pay.
