Check the fuel tank vent or the EVAP canister to see if they are plugged up. Do you ever hear a bang from the gas tank after the engine dies and then the car will start? Your fuel pump may be pulling a vacuum and if the tank can't get air to replace the gas used, the pump can no longer get gas to the engine. Next time the car dies, remove the gas cap and see if it sucks air in. If the car starts immediately then you know what the problem is.
