If so, what would be better life/mana on hit or leech?
Yes. Most melee builds can use Life Leech (LL), Life on Attack (LoA), and Life After Each Kill (LaeK).
LoA is generally gonna be better b/c of your high attack speed. But you also have a lot of missiles flying around from your attacks, so having some LL as a supplement is a good idea (which is why I recommend crafting jewels with Ber Runes when you get to that stage).
It seems like you're having some trouble with your Sorc. Here are a few generally applicable tricks to keep in mind when playing Melee Sorcs (these apply whether you're playing Chuck's Xena or Queen of Pain builds, or my build):
> Melee Sorcs are not tanks. They're closer to the traditional Rogue class in many RPGs.
> They have different playstyles depending on which Elemental tree combo you're using.
> You'll need to use different tactics in different situations (tanking, hit-and-run, flanking, etc.).
> Don't focus too much on maxing a single defensive mods. Instead, layer a bunch of different defensive mods in more modest amounts.
> Summons make excellent distractions when planted in the middle of a mob.
> Force Blast is incredibly useful in tough situations, especially against hard-hitting rangers.
