Might be a stupid question but I don't know:

Do I need a NIC to connect to the internet through an ethernet cable?

Not necessarily as your motherboard may already have an integrated ethernet port on it, most of them do nowadays.

If you've got a network cable lying around, look for a port on the back of your system-case that the network cable will fit into.
If it fits, that's an ethernet port.
