Hi
Sounds like a plaster and lath ceiling which most have paper over them to hide the cracks.
Yes you can over board you just need to find the joists.
But if the ceiling is sagging which suggests the plarser has come away from the lath’s id suggest replacing it.
I hope this has helped.
Thanks Darren
