Baking soda (alkali) and vinegar (acid) why mixed together
will produce CO2,
isn't neutralization will produce H2O and NaCl ?

i think you have got a wrong concept.
neutralization products are not only H2O ang NaCl.
hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide react together to form H2O and
NaCl. nitric acid and sodium hydroxide react to form NaNO3 and H2O.
sulphuric acid and sodium hydroxide react to form Na2SO4 and H2O.
baking soda contains carbonate ions . carbonate ions react with
acetic acid(vinegar) to form CO2 and H2O.

1. Baking soda is metal carbonate, not alkali
Definition of alkali = base that is soluble in water
Definition of base = react with acid to form salt and water as the ONLY products.
Neutralization = acid + base
Baking soda + vinegar is not a neutralization process
Reason for producing CO2 for the reaction:
2H+ + CO3 2- --> H2O + CO2
