So I was in a battle with my 12t and took a HE shell from a Pz IV H.  And I died without losing all of my hitpoints. Is this supposed to happen?

Crew killed will leave your tank banjaxed.

What Olias says, getting all crew killed ends the game for you as well, but it's a very rare event.

This is the 3rd post I've seen on this in the past few weeks.

 

I suspect it's now more common (with 1.0) than it used to be.

 

In my experience it happens in tanks with just 2 or 3 crew.

Can your tank drive with a death crew

No: all crew dead: game over for you, even if the tank has HP left.

Only if they have the "Ghost" perk or the "Zombie" directive.

Happens more often at T1 than any other tier - I had it last week playing the new Italian T1 tank - and I've only played 2 games in it

Should mostly happen at lower tiers, not just tier 1 at least that was not the case in the past. Like StinkyStonky pointed out, it's become oddly frequent lately at least as far as the forum posts seem to indicate. When this happens, nothing to do except enjoy the scenery.

In my experience (yes tinfoil...) HE dmg feels reduced. Currently grinding ISU-152 with stock (HE) gun, and the typical dmg per shot is between 200 and 300 hp, even hitting lightly armoured tanks. 

With lower dmg you might get more cases which in the past would have killed the tank along with the crew, where now tank survives but crew doesn't.
