Your answer to why Pūtanā died is because of Bhagwan Shri Kṛṣṇa’s greatness. He being God, sucked the life out of her while she was nursing him.

No they were not aware of his reality. Gita says BG 7.24: The less intelligent think that I, the Supreme Lord Shree Krishna, was formless earlier and have now assumed this personality.

Every Shastra (Vedic scripture) which mentions the supreme sweet eternal love (ecstasy) in "madhurya-rasa" and/or "shringar-rasa" speaks about Radha as a Gopi (chief gopi) or simply Gopika.
