We know that if an electron enters a region of magnetic field which is perpendicular to the direction of its velocity, the electron will start moving in a circular path. But, now instead of a single electron we place a circular condutor in the region of the field, and somehow manage to give an impulse to the electrons, will we get a current in the conductor? If yes, for how long?

If you have a conductor, then you don't need the magnet.
How long a specific current will persist depends on the resistance of the conductor.
