I wrote "Du mit das?" and it was accepted. In hind-sight, shouldn't that have been wrong, as "das" is not dative?

I agree with you, but as I am only learning myself perhaps I am wrong :)

I tried "Du mit der?" for funsies. This is the explanation for why that is wrong: 'In dative case, use "dem" for neuter nouns like "" '

What is the noun here, and how do I know it's neuter? If I'm pointing to something feminine then while saying that to someone, then is it ok?

Yes, if you would want to refer to a woman it would be "Du mit der?"
