In California, I had a judgment entered against me in a civil action. Does my attorney of record still represent me in the case or does the entry of judgment terminate his service. Does the judgment creditor have to serve him post judgment motions?

Whether he continues to be your attorney, depends on the terms of your retainer agreement. However, if his representation terminated at judgment, he still must give notice to the plaintiff's counsel, or plaintiff's counsel must continue to serve him with post judgment pleadings.
Most collection procedures require the judgment enforcement paperwork to be served on the party, whether or not they are represented by counsel.
