No, your mate cannot die.
If your mate is stuck somewhere (like an 'invisible wall'), first try howling. If it isn't responding to you, just save and end the game, then reopen the affected save file. The issue should be fixed upon reloading. If it isn’t please submit a bug report and include the affected save file and as much detail as possible so the developers can investigate.
