No, she can retain her original community status even if she is married to a general category person.

Thank you.

But it won't change even if she changes her religion?

Marriage does not change the status of community. However, you will lose SC status if opts to convert to Christianity.

But I have seen some verdicts of Supreme court where it states that caste by birth won't be changed even if a person opts to convert.

The cast certifiaate itself is issued on the condition tht the person is hindu/sikh/budhist.
