This is highly subjective.
Lag kills any class, D/C kills any class, poor skill, bravado and stupidity kill any class.
There are builds, play styles and equipment to easily survive what act1 will throw at you. If you can't deal with arcane, skip it, if you can't deal with invuln, skip that too. If your armor is too low to tank a few hits, kite more. If your build isn't working, find another.
For me, personally, I enjoy the thrill of playing the DH because I think it is one of the more challenging classes to play and brings a greater risk to my games. I enjoy seeing my health globe go up and down, laugh at the occasional red screen and survive with more satisfaction than if I'd been a barb, experienced a 3 second lag spike while standing in stacked desecrator/plauge pools getting hammered on by a fast horde, shrugged it off and kept thumping along.
As for advice to the OP, read the forums, come up with your plan then ask specific questions in the context of your personal goals. There are a lot of DH threads in HC, and an entire sub-forum devoted to DH. Use the information that works for you, accept that every game is the game that might kill you and have fun.
What is the safest character? The one you're not playing.
