Hello again, to answer your questions:

1. Your employment terminates when the notice period expires, unless your employer dismissed you by paying you in lieu of notice in which case it would end when the notice is given.
2. An unfair dismissal claim for redundancy would usually be made either if there was no genuine redundancy and the actual reason for the dismissal is challenged, or if it is alleged that a fair procedure was not followed. The latter would involve unfair selection for redundancy, lack of redundancy consultation, no offers of suitable alternative employment if they exist, etc. There is no specific list that a tribunal would look at and it would depend on what procedure was adopted by the employer.
