Chicken stock is a pretty standard substitute for white wine.

My first thought is... grape juice. My second thought is... I suppose there's such a thing as bottles of non-alcoholic wine?

Grape juice may be too sweet for a savory dish. A broth or even water to make u the missing volume would probably be better.

It very much depends on what you are making.

Juice a lemon and make up the difference in the liquid needed with chicken stock. Works like a charm!

Grape juice may be too sweet. If I was to use it, I'd cut it with some "white balsamic vinegar". And yes, there are several non-alcoholic wines that would probably be better than white grape juice.

Re substitutes for alcohol, I think you'll find this chart very useful.

I have used half white grape juice and half water when there was no white wine in the house. It works well for most things.

You can get non alcoholic wines and beers, I'm not sure what it tastes like. Remember when you cook with wines you burn the alcohol away anyway.

I would say chicken stock with a little lemon juice. It will give flavor but at the same time you will need the acidity that you miss from the wine

No you never burn all the alcohol away. How much evaporates depends on cooking time and method.
