Originally I did this by writing a new function that checked
if the mark was active. However, I think that using defadvice is a
better solution but I got stuck while trying to write it.

No, it's not!  By using advice, you modify the kill-region function and
risk that any command using it will backward-kill-word instead.

Just write the advice as

   (if (and (interactive-p) mark-active)
       ad-do-it
     (backward-kill-word 1))
