are the sentences correct? "does the shop open"? "does the shop close"?
Or should I say
"Is the shop open"?
"Is teh shop closed"?

Shops always open, and close, so, that phrase is obvious, thus useless.
"Is the shop open/closed" is a much better question.

at what time, or on what date or like that.
Ex. Does the shop open at 7a.m.? Does the shop open on Sundays?
Does the shop close at 7p.m.? Etc......

"Does the shop open" is incomplete. You would have to add a context: "on Sundays", "at x-o'clock", etc.
If you want to know if it's open for business, it's: "Is the shop open?"
"Does the shop open" refers to an action. "Is the shop open" refers to a state.
