    Could you die in real life if you die in a dream??

    Only if you're in the movie nightmare on elm street.

    But other than that I don't think so. When you're in REM it prevents your muscles from acting out your dreams. If that barrier is broken down (which it has been with very few people) then you could very well kill yourself by acting out your dreams. But a dream in and of itself is just thought patterns. So unless your thoughts can kill you're okay dreaming.
