Does the same work without adding salt?

There will also be a certain amount of chlorine gas from the salt.
What happens after I see bubbles? Thanks

then you add some dish soap to the water, and watch flammable bubbles form.

The Bubbles are Hydrogen and Oxygen. If you can collect them from each pen seperatly by using pvc-tubes, you can use them for other experiments. e.g. hydrogen has a lower density then air, a balloon would float if it was filled with H.

ps: oxygen will appear at the positive lead, negative leads to Hydrogen.
