Will creatures removed from the game with Void Maw return to the owners graveyard if Void Maw dies/is removed from the game?
when Void Maw leaves the battlefield all creatures remain exiled

it wasn't asked, but I'll mention that Void Maw will shut down all deathtriggers

Oh and a follow-up question: Does the effect trigger before or after a creature with Undying returns to battlefield?
as I said, Void Maw shuts down all deathtriggers
Undying will not trigger, the creature will not return

You neglected to mention the magic words, "replacement effect."  That is to say, Void Maw's static ability creates a replacement effect.  If another creature would die, it's exiled instead; that creature never reaches the graveyard.  Relevant CR quote:

614.1a Effects that use the word “instead” are replacement effects. Most replacement effects use the
word “instead” to indicate what events will be replaced with other events.


614.6. If an event is replaced, it never happens. A modified event occurs instead, which may in turn
trigger abilities. Note that the modified event may contain instructions that can’t be carried out, in
which case the impossible instruction is simply ignored.
