    They are good conductors of electricity because when acid/bases enter a solution they deionize (separate into ions) which helps conduct electricity. Also acid = anything below pH of 7, base = anything above pH of 7.

    Bases generally have hydroxyl groups or HCO3- and acids generally just have an H+. For example in your question HNO3 is an acid and KHCO3 is a base.

    HCO3 is called a bicarbonate group btw.
