Demat is nothing but holding your shares in electronic form (rather than holding in physical form). yes you need a demat account to trade in shares.

If you are not able to trade actively there are Many Portfolio Managment Services offered by many financial companies. I guess this is what you are looking for, when you said managed stock trading.

a share broker is the one who communicates your orders to the exchange.

Upon sale the funds will get credited to your account with you broker/ bank account, depending on your agreement with the broker.

All transactions of retail investors with a stock exchange necessarily happen through a broker. So it is safe.

Hope this helps
