Those are the symptoms of a bad battery. Try replacing the battery with a new one and see how that goes. If that does not solve the problem then it is most likely a board level issue which is more expensive and harder to troubleshoot.

If you do decide to replace the battery here is the guide to do it, note that you can't reuse the old battery adhesive and have to use a new one.
