You should not work in the field while the sun was hot.

I came across this sentence and it felt a little odd, The original sentence is not from a native speaker. I think it should be either:

You should not have worked in the field while the sun was hot.

or:

You should not work in the field while the sun is hot.

Maybe dropping "while" would be a better idea, but my question is- can a sentence have two different tenses like this?

Note: Some edits have been done after the answer was given.
