    It depend on your inverter as if it is Online then you have isolate it from neutral as the output of it remain on, for offline you may connect both neutral outputs together!!

    Because Neutral is part of the current path. Ground is meant to be the common wire, but Neutral is not.

    "Ground" in this case refers to a protective "earth ground". It is for the protection of humans.

    Normally, the earth ground carries no current at all, nor should it be used for that purpose; it is simply there in case there is a short from the mains power to the case of the equipment. A short from mains power to ground will result in the circuit breaker or fuse opening up, instead of having mains power connected to the equipment case - which would be a dangerous situation.
