If I drag and drop an audio file into a Note (Mac Desktop), does Evernote make a copy of the file and store it somewhere? If so, can I delete the original file and still have access to the recording in the note?

Yes, Evernote creates a copy of the file    
After syncing, the audio file is uploaded and stored on the Evernote servers

All content that was attached* to a note is saved in the own database of EN. It is then synced to the server, and stored in pretty safe cloud DataCenters operated by Google. I would say it is as safe as it can be.

However content can get lost, the easiest way without a recovery because the user himself deleted the note, and emptied the trash.

So it is up to your own safety feeling whether you keep a copy of the file, or delete it.

(*) exception is content that is only linked to a note.
