As @Doc mentioned, and as is mentioned on the official timetable, the last shuttle to CDG leaves Montparnasse at 22:30 (10:30 PM). If the train arrives on time, there's no issue in catching the 22:00 or 22:30 shuttle.

If his flight leaves CDG late in the following morning, I would suggest to take an hotel next to the Gare Montparnasse and then take the Air France shuttle in the morning.

Since France is part of the Schengen Area, you'll pass Schengen immigration when you land in Paris, and your flight to Prague will leave from the Schengen zone in the airport. Therefore, administratively speaking, you'll be in France, and you can wander around wherever you like. Time-wise, count on roughly one hour for immigration, one hour each way for ...
