As the use of bitcoin explodes exponentially, will we ever reach a point where transactions occur more quickly than they can practically be distributed to and verified by other nodes?

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

I routinely ignore posters with paid advertising in their sigs.  You should too.
