For the SIM card issue, This seems like a SIM card problem. If you have another SIM card try it in the phone. If this still does not work the SIM card holder might be bad, or the logic board might be bad too. For the battery, it probably has lost it's ability to be charged. If you get the SIM card problem fixed you can replace the battery and that problem should be solved too.
