Hello,
I have an MBP 2016.

It freezes when it's in sleep - and when I wake up, I find it frozen and returning some kernel fault.
I have run diagnostics at boot with internal SSD inside the laptop, it returns the error from the title - "There may be an issue with a storage device" and the Reference Code: VDH002.

I have ejected the internal SSD, did an SMC and NVRAM reset, but still, receive the error.

Can be the issue related to the logic board/CPU?



Thanks
 
It could be the logic board, SSD slot, or the SSD.
If you can boot from external devices then it could be the SSD.
If it happened after Mojave system update it could be related to EFI BIOS chip.
If it is the EFI BIOS chip and you have Apple care...then Apple will replace the system board.
Otherwise you need to take to a tech...there are some that will do free diagnostics.

Some info regarding your reply:
1. Firstly I have ejected the internal SSD because it started to randomly receive kernel faults regarding NVME and restarting and boot loops. (on safe mode I've not encountered boot loops).

I don't' know if it was a coincidence or not, but problems started after I've bought a new external monitor and connected the laptop to it. I ran on Mojave 2 weeks without problems until this.

I reinstalled Siera (the os came with internet recovery), worked, but when trying to install Mojave, while installing, keep received the kernel panics described below

2. After that, I've installed Mojave with no problems on the external SSD and started using it from it. But I encountered a new problem. In the time of sleeping mode, it encountered another type of kernel fault (which I described a little detailed here):

If you are having problems with external and internal disks then it could be a malfunctioning component...it could be the disk or a system board component.
I would take it or sent it to a repair shop...one that offers free diagnostics.
