In brief: Infections
Snake bite from non-poisonous snake, like any other animal bite, may introduce microbes at the site of the bite that may cause disseminated infection, which if untreated may cause death.

In brief: See below
Yes, theoretically, if the wound became infected and then the patient became septic or if a severe allergic reaction like anaphylaxis occurred.
