Elves do not die until the world ends. Yet they can 'die', or rather have their physical forms destroyed, due to saddness, wearyness of the world, or injuries.

Yes, I never heard of Elves having their physical forms destroyed by weariness of the world, or sadness. I thought that if they were weary they could go over the Sea to the West, and that they continued living there. And what is supposed to happen to them if they die in battle? I never really understood that, maybe someone else knows?

If they die, they go to the Halls of Mandos, where they await judgement. After they pass it, they are allowed to roam Valinor, but seldom return. The only cases I can think of of a dead Elf returning are Glorfindel, and Luthien. But Luthien was a different matter.

Beleg? Of course you're an Elf! As in Naur i Hurin, or Turin, or something like that. Anyway, it's the first chapter of the Unfinished Tales.
