If a dead body has been embalmed and you submerge it in water will it still build up gasses and float?
In short no. The reason a submerged body wil float is because of the gasses created by bacteria as they degrade the organic matter. Once tha body has been enbalmed it will not rot, the bacteria will not act on it and thus not create the gasses.

Why do dead people float?
After death, the organisms/bacteria within the body will metabolise and multiply, producing lots of gas in the process. Most of this gas is unable to escape, so the body expand and float from all of the gasses present. The body will then sink again once it has decayed enough to allow the gasses to escape.

Where does the ability of an object to float or submerge in water depends on?
ability of an object to float or submerge depends upon the density of the object and on the density of the liquid in which it is submerged if the density of an object is greater than the density of the liquid then the object submerges in the liquid and when its density is less than the density of liquid then it floats on the liquid as in submarines when it takes water in its hollow tank its density increases and it submerges and when it pushes out water from its hollow tanks its density decreases and ot floats on water

Does a Lego boat float?
Are you talking about the premade shells or the ones you build yourself? The premade shells do float, although they leak slightly. The sets might or might not float (depends on the set) but i would bet the pirate ship at the very least is top heavy. As for the ones you build yourself, as long as you make the surface area of the hull reasonably large, it should float fine.
