Are we seeing in the past when we look at the stars?

Suppose a star is 100 light-years away from the earth, thereforeEarth. Therefore, the light coming from the star  (which carries its information) takes roughly 100 light-yearsyears to reach earth howeverEarth. However, if in the mean time ifmeantime the star dies, we would still be able to see that star in the sky. Is that truly right? If yes, how often does it happenshappen when we look up in the sky  (any guesses)?
