The View command (or `TeX-view' for that matter) always executes the
same command line because it's mostly not possible to determine if a
viewer is still running or not.  What you could do is implement your own
functions for either loading or reloading a PDF file, or add a new entry
to `TeX-command-list' to perform the respective action.  Note however,
that AUCTeX will always call the command `TeX-command-Show' when it
thinks no more typesetting work is necessary.

You probably need a window manager which works together with xpdf.
(Assuming it is the window manager's fault.  It could also be a problem
of xpdf.)

Other than that, the easiest way is probably to use <Alt>+<Tab> (or
whatever your window manager uses for bringing windows to front) and
then type `r' to reload the PDF file in xpdf.
