can a hemorrhagic bleeding in the brain cause death, if not immediate, later on?

Yes: Certainly, bleeds from aneurysms or avms or strokes can lead to death days to weeks after the initial event. The patient may survive the initial bleed, for example, or their condition may be stabilized surgically, but they may have a rebleed or they may die from other causes. For example, they are frequently in a debilitated state and die from pneumonia, or bed sores.
