Is it ok to lay the LED light bar directly on the glass? When it's sitting on the brackets it a lot of unwanted light coming out the sides.

Its okay to rest the LED bar & support brackets directly on the glass top. The brackets affixed to the ends offer stability and safety. Not secured you run the risk having the lights slide off the tank, or into it.
Old florescent lights were often just positioned on top of the glass lid.
