How do you know if Mycelium is dead or not ? does it turn color or disappear or turn hard or dry up?

It may help to better diagnose if you could provide a description of what you are dealing with. Is this a spent cake or is it still in the process of colonization? Did growth stop? Turn yellow? Lose mass? Often times "dead" mycelium is actually just dried out. If this is the case yo try injecting a few cc of sterilized water into the grain/BRF/WBS.

not a cake just using a media in a dome like aquarium... colonization still in progress... growth stalled i had to much humidity let it sit for 4 days and started to grow again then my temps fluxed ... then i got it to stay at 80 but then notice yellow myc then found out it was myc piss.. well before i found that out i took a spray bottle with h202 and did two quick sprays on the myc thinking the yellow was contam.. after i sprayed it looked like the myc melted or shrank.. then i was told to take a fork and scraped the media in the spots where it did not colonize yet to regenerate the myc.. i did that this morning and now hat the temp to 85ish with a ultrasonic humidifier... am i doomed>???

The only thing you can do is just wait it out. If it is contaminated you will know within the next couple of days..Just keep your temps stabilized. If it is not 100%colonized then do not mess with it or you can possibly cause its contamination.
In your other thread you mentioned how to tell if it is drying out...
the color will turn lighter. When things are wet they are dark they get lighter as they dry, Rye and Wheat berries will shrink as they lose moisture.

Just wait it out,

Take care n be safe...
