If a BitLocker protected external drive is in a locked state when ransomware infects a computer, would it still be able to compromise the drive/data?

Any advice is helpful. Thank you.

It would be possible for the drive to be wiped, and I guess if the keys for the drive were stored in the PC, it might be able to mount the drive then encrypt it.

Seriously I don't have any idea about BitLocker antivirus. I am using Comodo antivirus from past 1 year I didn't face any problem till date.
