In most jurisdictions, you must have a divorce judgment entered and final before you can marry again. This is certainly the law in California. It does not matter how long you have been separated. You should check the marriage laws in the place you want to marry.

No. Not legally. If you are married anywhere in the world you must get divorced before getting married again or you will be guilty of bigamy and the new marriage will not be valid. Being separated is not enough.
