Why is it not correct to say "Де ваші племінники живуть?"

It is not ungrammatical, but the inverted word order may sound unnatural in some contexts. By saying "Де ваші племінники живуть?" you are stressing "ваші племінники" a little bit. Still, it can be accepted.

Interestingly, with personal pronouns it is the other way around. For example, "Де живеш ти?" (Where do you live?) sounds like a line from some poem. The usual word order is "Де ти живеш?"
