I read that if someone reads the last three ayat of surah hashr in the morning and dies during the day, he will become a martyr. And if someone reads it in the night and dies he will become a martyr. Is this true and can you please tell me ways one can die as a martyr?

There is a (weak) hadith about the virtue of Surah Hashr that the one who recites it shall receive the reward of a martyr.

من قال حين يصبح ثلاث مرات: أعوذ بالله السميع العليم من الشيطان الرجيم، ثم قرأ الثلاث آيات من آخر سورة الحشر، ... إن مات في ذلك اليوم مات شهيدا، ومن قالها حين يمسي كان بتلك المنزلة

whoever says three times when he gets up in the morning: 'A'udhu Billahis-Sami Al-'Alim Min Ash-Shaitanir-Rajim' and he recites three Ayat from the end of Surah Al-Hashr ... If he dies on that day, he dies a martyr, and whoever reaches the evening, he holds the same status."

Jami at-Tirmidhi

Al-Suyuti in أبواب السعادة في أسباب الشهادة has collected around 60 causes of death which receive the reward like that of a martyr, please refer to that.
