Note: Closing a survey will only restrict access to the survey. This does not affect data / reporting in any way. To activate the survey again simply set the Current Status to Active.

Can the survey be deactivated automatically on a certain date?

Yes. You can enter the date in the Close Date field in MM/DD/YYYY format or select the date by clicking on the calendar icon. The survey will close exactly at 12:00AM on the set date. So if you set the date as 10/05/2011, Respondents will be able to take the survey till 11:59PM on 10/05/2011.
