Dealing with the battery first, is the alternator working? You could have it tested at your local auto parts store to check

Seems like 2 different issues. Test the battery and also check for a draw

x2 on the above. Distributor has nothing to do with the battery.

Battery going dead (not charging) and it not running right could be the alternator. What is the voltage when it is running (preferably using a multimeter at the battery terminals (if not, off the dash)
