It sounds like you have a number of issues: 1) it sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery while the car is running. The battery will start the car but the alternator will charge the battery so you can use all electronics while driving. 2) something in the fuel delivery system is causing it to idle rough or a timing belt issue. 3) spark plugs?

Jump starting gives you the juice to start it up but once that is gone if the Alternator isn't working it will stall because not enough power is going to the Cars Computer, take your Alternator off and if you have any Auto Parts Store close to you most will check it for free.
