If I were to upgrade to Bionic Beaver Beta2, will the Beta2 be upgraded to the stable version of Bionic Beaver?

The beta is already out of date and was really only a snapshot of development at the time that the beta was released.

If you upgrade your current installation online then you're updating to wherever development of 18.04 has progressed at the time your upgrade. If you need to download an ISO then it's best to use the current daily build which you can find at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/.

Whichever method you choose to upgrade/update your installation, by upgrading to or installing Ubuntu 18.04 now, there will be no need to upgrade on 26th April when Bionic beaver is due to be released. Just install any updates as they become available.
