The electron has a g-factor given by $g/2 = 1 + \alpha / 2\pi$ .

Does the expression really mean that the charge of the electron rotates faster than its mass - if they have the same distribution?

Both the spin angular momentum and the magnetic moment of the electron are quantum properties of the particle which are not related to a rotation of mass or charge as one would expect for a classical object.
