If you outline the lines, you can select both the line and the background object and Alt -click Exclude in the Pathfinder panel to create a compound shape.

The sample file was originally created in Illustrator CS5 and in that version it is working properly.

 

Just noticed that using the file in Illustrator CC 2020 is a bit wonky since the Calligraphic brushes change their behaviour when you move them around (that should not happen). Probably it would just have to be recreated in CC 2020.
