How do constitution modifier changes affect current HP?

  1. We are quite new to playing D&D and recently noticed that when you gain or lose constitution modifier, you will gain or lose hitpoints.

    Now we are having a few issues with this, mainly being: What happens to a Level 5 character, with 5/25 HP and getting a -2 constitution modifier debuff. Will he be bleeding on the floor with a -5/15 hp? The same as when the debuff wears off, will the character that has -5/15 suddenly stop bleeding and be conscious with 5/25 hp again?

    Currently the rulebook only states that a constitution modifier change will change your hp per hit dice and that your constitution modifier can not lower your max hp to less than 1 hp per hit dice.

    Further, can a character die from constitution loss combined with previously attained damage? As in, I already have 50 damage on 70hp... will I die if I lose 20hp due to constitution loss?
