Who are the Gedolei Yisroel?

1) When it's said that Tamidei Chachomim complete their purpose in this world, early in life;
what is the purpose that they've completed?
Hashem keeps him in the world only because we need his Torah, not because he needs it,
2) Doesn't the Talmid Chochom need his own Torah learning?
Doesn't he earn more Olam Haba, the longer he lives and the more he learns?

and if Klal Yisroel doesn't receive his guidance or doesn't receive any other benefit from him;
does this mean that C"V he could then pass away, earlier in life?
Am I understanding correctly?

"Everyone must follow the traditions of their parents. One may not deviate from their customs. And in a case where there is a disagreement in Halacha and there is no family tradition, one should follow the Posek who is a greater Godol BaTorah. And it is possible to know who is greater, for example, here in Eretz Yisroel there are many places where people should follow the Psakim of the Chazon Ish." - Michtavim Umaamarim vol. 3, #213.
On the FrumTeens site the moderator wrote "Rav Shach writes - if you dont know who to follow, follow whoever is greater - and, he adds, you can of course tell who is greater."
Where can this Rav Shach be found in writing?
