No. When you become a US citizen, you are removed from the preference categories and your spouse is immediately eligible for a visa regardless of the priority date on your initial I-130. But you must update your I-130 to spouse of US citizen for this to happen. You should discuss the pros and cons of naturalizing during the process with an attorney.
Yes, the priority date (when the I-130 petition was filed with the USCIS) will be unchanged. You should notify the USCIS and then the National Visa Center (NVC) when you are a U.S. citizen so that the I-130 petition is "updated".
