The most likely common problem with these symptoms is a sticky/dirty idle air control valve, which either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Other possibilities is a clogged fuel filter, failing fuel pump relay, or fuel pump itself.

I would recommend having your car’s starting and dying condition inspected by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
