Most common causes of your problem are either partial fuel pump or crank position sensor failure. If when you turn the key on right after it dies, you can hear the pump in the tank running, then I'd test the crank sensor (if good check the cam sensor). Problems with wiring harness, poor grounding bad ignition switch can also give similar symptoms but also need testing to verify. (parts may test good unless it's in no-start when tested) Sometimes a code scan will help, so begin there. (many larger parts stores test free)
Do not replace anything before it's tested or you can spend far more $ than if you had just brought it to a shop and had them do the repair. (something you are likely trying to avoid)
Any specific questions you have about test results etc, just ask!!

Try or (have your mechanic) remove oil pressure switch and clean. They gum up and it's a safety feature that when car is in accident and/or roll over, when oil pressure drops (eng quits) power to fuel pump shuts off. Sticking oil pressure switch is common on Benz Diesels

Dies unexpectedly, randomly

It could be that you are having problems with proper spark with the engine. It could be a rusty cap and rotor or problems with your solenoid coil or ignition coil.

Car dies unexpectedly sometimes starts soon sometimes takes a day, replaced fuel pump already.

Check the Catalytic Converter. Sometimes when they get plugged the guts will settle down when cold but once they are warmed up they expand and starve the engine.

Pressure buildup in the gas tank which causes the car to sputter and die unexpectedly.

I have never seen or heard such thing. You have a different problem. Is the "check engine light on?" Gas tanks have pressure in them on regular bases and I have never seen car sputtering because of a pressure in the gas tank.
