    will I get

    teacher, are these sentences OK? Can I use either "which" or "that"?

    1) Will I get my office key by this Thursday which is my last day in the office before I go on my holiday?

    2) Will I get my office key by this Thursday that is my last day in the office before I go on my holiday?

    Re: will I get

    One is fine. The other is not but could be made correct by the addition of a question mark after "Thursday", followed by a new sentence. Can you work out which one?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, or you can keep it as "That is" instead of "It is."

    I would put a comma after "Thursday" in the first one.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
