Not sure what you are asking exactly.
How connectivity between machines technically work depend on the configuration.
e.g. you can setup Neutron to use/configure vlan's on the physical network or use GRE tunnels.
Usually you can define a network within OpenStack and Neutron will handle setting up up the required components.

Load-balancers are only needed when you scale out one application for regular communication between machines you won't need it.
