hot water heater leaking

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
My electric hot water heater is leaking from water heater connector on top. It is a flexible line. Now there is water under my linolium floor, free floating.
1. Do I need to drain the water heater to replace the connection?
2. Any suggestion on how to get the water from under the flooring? It is not on top anywhere, just under it making it have bubble poofs in various places.
