Exactly as it sounds. If a Tomb Prince on a chariot is in combat and the other unit strikes first and kills the prince but doesn't damage (or direct any attacks) at the chariot, does the chariot's horses still get to attack? Does the opponent get the remaining wounds on the chariot for combat res?

Only remove the chariot if it is actually killed. The Horses still get to attack. Odds are the chariot is going to crumble from combat res at the end of combat anyway.

If Tomb King/Prince dies, the chariot fights as normal. So if someone eg. kills the King/Prince from shooting, you are left with normal chariot (but without crew).
What's interesting, if the King/Prince was killed while being alone, the chariot can't join units (as it's no longer a character). And vice versa - if the King/Prince was killed while being in a unit, his chariot can't leave the unit anymore (as it's no longer a character).
Also, healing the 'empty' chariot won't recrew it with skeletons (as the crew didn't exist at the begining of the battle).

uhm, unsure how the wording of the two items are, but the chariot most likely will not get the benefits of the two magic chariot upgrades anymore - if the prince/king would actually had bought them.

Amusingly, there is no requirement that a chariot have any crew left to function. The War Altar can lose its Arch Lector in a similar manner (but doesn't crumble). In both cases, the resulting uncrewed chariot apparently operates as normal.

It's no real surprise that removing the brains from a horse actually make it smarter...
