Everytime i try to AF on my 50mm 1.4, i found it's really easy to misfocus on my subject, especially on long range, so can anyone give me some idea, what focus point should i put or wat AF mode work best for 50 1.4

One shot with center point only. Then you can focus and recompose and I think the center point is more sensitive too below f2.8

shooting at 1.4f is very hard to do... very very little is in focus.

you should put the focus point on the spot you want the focus...don't focus recompose with a fast prime it can result in missed focus...but definitely don't use all focus points, and let the camera decide....choose 1 point that you want in focus

yup, keeping it at 1.4 results in lots of misdirected focal points. Bring it down some and aim center
