    According to my understanding do you want to read the text file (URL, Active) and need to save it in the custom list?

By this way, you can achieve your solution, Please Update the logic as for your context.

using (SPSite oSPsite = new SPSite("http://website url/"))
using (SPWeb oSPWeb = oSPsite.OpenWeb())
        oSPWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

        // Fetch the List
        SPList list = oSPWeb.Lists["MyList"];

        string[] lines = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(@"C:\Users\Public\TestFolder\timesheetfile.txt");

        SPListItem itemToAdd = null; 

        //Display the file contents by using a foreach loop and update logic as You want.           
        foreach (string line in lines)
        string[] arr = line.Split(",");

         //Add a new item in the List
        itemToAdd = list.Items.Add();
        itemToAdd["URL"] = Convert.Tostring(arr[0]);
        itemToAdd["Active"] = Convert.Tostring(arr[1]);
