My peach tree has a dead limb that I want to either prune carefully or leave alone since my tree has already started to produce baby peaches. Which should I do, cut it or leave it?

I would leave it until after harvest if you can. While the risk is low on cutting a dead limb, any pruning can open the tree to disease, so better safe than sorry in case the plant purges the fruit to fight the disease.
