Will I get arrested upon being served a criminal restraining order?

Since there is no such thing as a "Criminal Restraining Order," I'm guessing you are being served a Petition for an Order of Protections and perhaps an interim order of protection. If that is all that is going on, nobody is going to arrest you as long as you obey the interim. Also, it is to your advantage to get served quickly because that gives you more time to prepare for the plenary hearing.

You might if a warrant was issued for your arrest. Seek the counsel of a local lawyer.

If there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be arrested. You really need to discuss this with your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, you need to hire one right away.
