For example, a power outage or losing your internet connecting for even a second will cut you off and then your brain gets fried. And it sucks for all the people without families or significant others, the game is gonna take probably years to clear so anyone without support to take care of their bodily needs is pretty much already dead.
I believe they are hospitalized/taken care of in the real world. Along with that, the NerveGear slows down the body cycles. Keep in mind it's been one month already. "Only" 2k people died. In one month, 8k players survived, so there's clearly external support in place.
The alternative is that the fact they'll die is just a troll, along with the fact that it's been one month, but that would be anticlimactic.

This is esily answered. There's no magic in SAO. Along with realism, this was done to prevent healing skills, which would make the game a great deal easier. So everybody does melee fight.
Also, trivia: main characters here will have a daughter after this is over with... Kuroyukihime of AW. The Brain Burst itself will be made by Kirito. I'm not quite sure if this is confirmed in the novel or otherwise stated by the author or if it's just hinted somewhere and the rest is a fan assumption. But one thing is certain, SAO and AW take place in the same universe, SAO in 2022, AW in 2046. The years to make this match up are there.
