Do lots of display:none slow page speed?
When design responsive design, people like to use display:none for certain blocks. I think page still load these elements right?

Yes. the element is loaded.

Sri is right. These non-displayed elements are still loaded into DOM, content of them is loaded too. Page speed would be similar with or without "none" value of display property.

In order to change that you would need to use a server-side language like PHP to do some device detection to know what content to serve up.
That's what some people have started calling RESS (Responsive + Server Side)
