If I upload a dataset with synced option enable then I haven't the option to do the geocoding.

enter image description here

Is that normal?

How I can geocode the addresses?

If manually I can't do the geocoding, how I can do programmatically?

Geocoding is generally unavailable for synced datasets in CartoDB, because each sync would cost geocoding credits which would end up charging the users an exorbitant amount. However, if you have columns called "latitude" AND "longitude", "city" or "IP addresses" your georeferencing will be done automatically upon each sync. Maybe that could be a workaround for you or you could try using a google script with SQL to geocode a google spreadsheet and then sync that to CartoDB.
