Similar problem here. My cat had two and a half cats - the half was born undeveloped and therefore dead. The other two seemed normal. However, one of them died just now (4 days after being born). I'm just concerned that the other one might die too. Will there be any behavioral changes in the mom cat? And, what will she do with the dead kitty? Should I remove it or she will?

There are many things that could have caused the death of the kittens.  Congenital defects (inherited from birth), infectious diseases, improper nutrition (mom may not have been allowing them to nurse), premature birth, hypothermia, and fading kitten syndrome.  
If you would like to know the exact cause of death you can have an autopsy performed on one of these kittens.
I am sorry you lost these little guys.  Kittens are very fragile.
