Can I connect gasoline generator directly to PC?

I have a light-weight portable gasoline generator 750W max.
I also have a 1350W online UPS (NOT offline or line-interactive, online!)
Obviously my PC, monitor and speakers are connected to UPS.

Now, when I connected the gasoline generator to UPS, the generator voltage dropped to only 20 Volts and UPS shows "AC failure" and started beeping. Seems like generator overload? So does the UPS require 1350W input even if the UPS load is 30% which I figure is about 400-500W max.

I was hoping to use UPS between generator and PC as a voltage stabilizer but it does not seem to work.

Is it ok if I connect my PC directly to the generator? Im worried because generator voltage needle goes between 200-230 Volts...
