In brief: Yes

Yes. There are several heart defects that you may die from if you are affected.
Usually that happens early in life. Many of the defects can be corrected surgically, but not all of them and sometimes despite correction they do not have good prognosis. I would refer you for the list of such conditions to pediatric cardiologist since science in this area is changing constantly.
