1) As you have already been released from police custody pending the adjudication of your charges (i.e. released on bail or a promise to appear), unless you commit another offence for which you get arrested, you will not go to jail while awaiting the trial date. You are out of custody following the charges, and assuming you don't re-offend, it will stay that way up until your trial.
2) As per the above, as you have already been released on bail or a promise to appear, they cannot go back in time and hold you for bail. So you'd just set the trial for your matter and then go home, you wouldn't have a bail hearing.
3) No, police lay charges not you. You can report it to the police and request they lay charges against him, there is no time limit for you to do so.
Hopefully that answers all your questions.
If you were charged with an offence that means you were arrested in order for them to do so, even if they didn't physically put cuffs on you.
Theoretically the charges could be withdrawn on the first court date if evidence supports that, but in general such is quite rare, and the Crown rather than the police are the ones who would make the decision to drop the charges once they've been laid.

As the charges have been laid it's out of the complainant's hands and up to the prosecutor to proceed as s/he sees fit.
If the person dies prior to trial, it is very unlikely they'll proceed with the case since his prior allegation to police would be deemed hearsay and thus presumptively inadmissible. However, it is possible they could proceed if this person gave a sworn statement and/or otherwise testified about the incidents prior to dying. That being said, it is unlikely the prosecutor would proceed as they generally only do so in such circumstances when the charge are very serious which here they don't really seem to be. So, under the present circumstances, if they person dies the charges would likely get dropped on or shortly before the trial date.
Hopefully that answers all your questions. If so, it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide me with a positive rating. Thank you very mu
