Yes, see 250.32(B). The neutral is not bonded to the GEC or loadcenter so without an EGC there is nothing to clear a fault.

Will this create a ground loop if the EGC is connected on both ends?
No, it's the same as connecting an EGC to any subpanel. Remember the grounded conductor is not bonded to the EGC or GES at the detached structure, it floats so there is no loop possible.
