Can we stop, the container engine clusters when not in use and restart it when needed ?
We have created a cluster for development purpose using n1-standard-8 machines. We generally used it in day time for development purpose. Is there any way we can stop the cluster during night time or on weekends ?

You can simply set the replicas to 0 in the yaml and it'll effectively turn off the cluster. And, it'd then be a fairly simple matter of scaling it back up the same way. So, if you wanted to, you could set up a job to run "kubectl apply -f your-deployment-day.yaml" during the day to start the cluster and kubectl apply -f your-development-night.yaml" to stop it during evening and weekends.
