If you watch closely most of the time, anyone 'dead' is on screen for only a few seconds, usually 5 to 10s only, before cutting away. If it's an extended scene they may make a 'breastplate' out of chickenwire for the actor to wear under their clothes. This allows them to breathe without their clothes moving.
