Agreed.  I was recasting the idea, not the specific grammar.  It’s not like you can breathe while being dead (except for vampires).

So to re-cast your first example, I would see nothing wrong with:

  Suvlu'taHvIS batlh potlh law' yIn potlh puS       [or]
  Suvlu'taHvIS batlh potlh law' tlhuH potlh puS

But neither of these express "breath(ing) while living".
