In my country, when people surprised so much we speak:

I almost died in surprise.

When you get astonished so much, you feel a bit of pain in your heart. And you feel you might die from it.

But I don't get any google hit with the phrase 'die in surprise'. I searched also 'die on surprise', 'die by surprise', and 'die from surprise'. I don't get any google hit on the first page.

Do you use this expression? If not, what would be the closet thing to this phrase?

You got close, but the phrase in English uses "of".
Google search "die of surprise"

For example: "I might die of surprise..."
