Question about replacement queen

Hey everyone im just learning about bees and beekeeping before I start my own colony. I was wondering how the new queens mate after they replace the old one for example if the original queen stopped making female bees and the hive made some new queens and balled the original one, would the new queen fly around looking to mate with new males different from the hive or would she mate with their own family hive. If she leaves to mate Is there a chance she would die to a predator and your colony would die afterwards. Thanks for reading this big ramble of a question
