Raul, you have two issues going on here. do it systematically and start with the easy things. Try to reset your Touch by

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Make sure you have a full battery. Plug it into an AC charger, not your USB port.

Okay so if that does not do anything, it might be time to open up your ipod and check for any visible damage. Follow this guide to clean your iPod. At least, replace your battery. Once you have this accomplished, re-evaluate what works and what doesn't and let us know.
