He can only be out hit wicket "in commission of a stroke, or when setting off for his first run" - so if he spins around, loses balance and falls on his stumps, he'll be out, regardless of where the ball is going.

Based on your comments, nothing happens. The ball goes dead, he walks out and gets the bat, and the next ball is bowled. Simply losing control of the bat does not cause a dismissal.
