You actually don't delete it...with your object selected...go to the channel box...at the bottom of the channel box you will see "visibility"..everytime you want it visible....leave it at on(numeric=1)...and at the part you want it to disappear...put it off (numeric=0)...good luck

To fade, you can key frame the transparency.
