    When Na^+ reached the negative electrode, wont it get its electron back and become neutral?

    Yes ... and no.

    It depends if it's in competition with other species that can more easily lose their electrons ... such as hydroxide ions.

    how can a conductimeter be used to measure the rate of the reaction? and why is AC only used to measure the conductivity and not DC?

    1. If there is a change in ionic concentration during a reaction, the conductivity can be used to measure rate.
    2. If DC is used then reactions (electrolysis) can take place that change the characteristics of the solution.
