I am curious how people in coma and with brain dead (after some time without oxygen)

I am curious how people in coma and with brain dead (after some time without oxygen) do body function by itself or must be connected to some device to mentain life?
Question since i heard that mind controls heartbeating and other functions of body, if its dead wont heart stop beating?
