Apologies noob here, I would like to remove the following edge:

enter image description here

But if I select the edge and press x -> dissolve edge the result is:

If instead I delete the edge wuth x -> Edges the mesh loose its face(s):

I would like to remove the edge and keeping the faces (or join them into one if this is not possible). How I do that in Blender?

What you're looking for is called "limited dissolve", but I agree with moonboots, why to dissolve that edge?
