So then are all early votes just sorta “lost”? Meaning, because the early votes voted for a now dead president, and they can’t take their votes back (barring some exceptions in certain states), those votes just don’t count for anything (except their down ballot votes)?

That, and people have already voted for Pence given early voting have they not? Wouldn’t choosing someone else split votes?

It’s just a majority. But the president can contest it and go to Congress and Congress has 21 days to decide if the president is fit to serve. They need a 2/3 vote in both houses to remove. This was easily searchable.
