Strictly speaking, if he's the commander of the ship, he should be addressed as "Captain" regardless of his rank -- although this has rarely been acknowledged in onscreen Trek. However, in TMP, once he changed out of his dress uniform into a standard duty uniform, he had captain's braid on his sleeves. In Ex Machina I interpreted his demotion as the price Nogura exacted in exchange for giving him the Enterprise back.
