can i use find my iphone if its dead?

I lost my iphone (ios 8 and up) and it's dead. i tried using find my iphone from the icloud and i had three options (play sound, lost mode, erase).
Does the play sound option even if it is dead?
How can i see the last location of the iphone before it was dead?
when and how can my iphone be online instead of ofline?
