Yes, death, which came into the world because of Adam's sin, kills even the innocent/sinless animals in the world. Animals cannot sin any more than a newborn child can, yet both die because death is in the world. We begin to die as soon as we are born. Some die before they are born, not because they are sinners in the womb, but because death is in the world ...

For example, Gen 49:33 - When Jacob had finished giving instructions to his sons, he drew his feet up ...

No. The spirit can not leave the body ‘miraculously’. It only leaves in, or as as a result of death. Although dying and coming back to life would be miraculous - so in a sense - yes!
