If I go out of USA for 2 weeks before applying for N-400, can I still submit the N-400 application, or do I have to wait an additional 3 months before applying?

You need to have resided in the state or service district that you apply for naturalization in for 3 months before filing. (See 12 USCIS-PM D.6(A).) But a vacation generally does not affect your place of residence. See in particular, 8 CFR 316.5(b)(5)(i), which says that your residence, during an absence abroad of less than one year, remains the state or service district where you last resided:

(i) An applicant's residence during any absence of less than one year shall continue to be the State or Service district where the applicant last resided at the time of the applicant's departure abroad.

You can still submit the N-400 application, assuming all other requirements are met. The trip doesn't matter.
