Yes you can, i would go for a tv with a display port over hdmi, but hdmi will work as well. You might experience input delays but depending on the tv and setup, that can be rendered minimal, but short answer, yes you can most certainly use a tv instead of a monitor.

Yes, I've used TVs as my monitors for work and play for over a decade. I currently have my main on HDMI and my secondary via DVI. Works fine for action games like Far Cry 5 etc.

Here's a PCG article about it:
