You can try, but warranty is not international. If they do replace your
iPhone, it should be the same model, same color, same RAM, locked to
Verizon. More likely is they will tell you to take it back to the US.

No. It would be impossible to get a Verizon phone there. Being a CDMA carrier makes it doubly difficult. Send it to someone back home who can take it in and get it replaced.

BTW, if I don't insist to have a CDMA version, would it be possible to replace a China version for me ?

As you bought the phone in the US in the first place, an Apple store in China may not help you at all and may tell you to take the phone back to the States and get help there because the warranty is NOT international but country specific.
If you need a replacement iPhone, you will be given exactly what you already have which would not be possible in China, so once they see what phone you have, they will probably tell you to take it back to the US and they are within their rights not to help you as warranty is not international.
You have 2 options - send your iPhone back to the US and get someone there to fix it for you and then buy another cheaper phone whilst you are travelling in China that you can use there with a local sim card. You could always use that phone in China and then get your iPhone repaired on your return to the US.
