The dead battery could be that you may have left something on and it drained the battery, if not take a look for any loose connections on the battery. As far as you having to push hard on the pedal to keep the car running, you want to take a look at the throttle body it will look something like this. The cable could be loose, it could need a good cleaning with a cleaner such as CRC.
