No, it's a continuous distribution.

Yes. When we refer to the normal distribution, we are referring to a probability distribution. When we specify the equation of a continuous distribution, such as the normal distribution, we refer to the equation as a probability density function.

the empirical rules of probablility applies to the continuous probability distribution

Yes it can be negative.

No, the normal distribution is strictly unimodal.

No. The binomial distribution (discrete) or uniform distribution (discrete or continuous) are symmetrical but they are not normal. There are others.

No, it's a continuous distribution.

The statement is false. The binomial distribution (discrete) or uniform distribution (discrete or continuous) are symmetrical but they are not normal. There are others.

A discrete probability distribution is defined over a set value (such as a value of 1 or 2 or 3, etc). A continuous probability distribution is defined over an infinite number of points (such as all values between 1 and 3, inclusive).
