Sounds like your battery needs to be charged or a new one.

check the fuel pump relay in front of car in fuse box under engine hood, the fuel pump relay may have a bad connection pull fuel pump relay bend pins a little to make relay tighter in socket, relay gets hot well driving and weakens the socket making bad connection to relay. has happen to me it sound the same that happen to me.

or bad battery
