If my MD vehicle registration is expired, and I'm moving to SC next week, how do I register this vehicle in SC?
Do I still NEED to be registered in Maryland prior to trying to register in South Carolina? Is there a penalty for trying to register in South Carolina with expired tags?

You only need your MD title to transfer to a SC title. But it takes awhile. If you want to drive for a month with expired tags it is up to you.

It does not have to be registered in MD in order to be registered in your new (SC) state.
However.....If the registration (license plates) has expired when you move the car to SC, you should transport it by truck to avoid a ticket for non registration.

SC doesn't give 2 shits about it. How do you propose driving there with expired tags?

It is illegal to drive on public roads without the vehicle being registered. So you are already breaking the law. It does not matter where you get it registered but you need to do it ASAP. I would go to SC next week and be "surprised" when they tell you your registration is expired. You might get away with it without a fine.
