I ran into the common issue where Illustrator CS6 was unable to open in newer Mac OS version and asking for Java 6 to be installed.

While I have already installed Java 8, I found this thread where a few answers pointed to the possibility of using Java 8 as long as two empty directories are created: Adobe Illustrator CS6 with Java 8?

However, it appears that most users there are using El Capitan or older versions, and since there are some SIP related operation involved, to be on the cautious side, I want to know if anyone tried/knew the same solution proposed in the above thread would work for Mojave (10.14.6)? Would this cause any issue with future updates?

The answer given by Zac Jackson still applies to Mojave: you would have to disable SIP in order to create the required folders. Illustrator's reliance on Java is very slight: the main problem is the 'check' at startup.

Arguably, it's easier just to install Java 6 SE anyway. Java 6 doesn't interfere with Java 8, you can have both installed with no problem.

Only Illustrator and Dreamweaver need Java: the other CS6 apps do not.

However, as Mojave gets older and older, your best option is to run Creative Suite inside a virtual machine running an older OS, like El Cap, and/or migrate to cheaper, more up-to-date apps, like Affinity Designer, that are just as good, if not better, for many uses.
