Try a restart. Hold on/off button for 20-30 seconds then release.

Try holding the power button for at least 20 seconds, and then leaving it to restart. That should work.

Depending on which kindle you have, either 15 or 30 hours of reading. It actually lasts a certain amount of page turns, possibly 5,000.

Is your wifi turned off. If you leave wifi on it will be continually trying to find a wifi signal and that absolutely eats battery life.

Perhaps it is stuck indexing a book. Search for a nonsense string (eg xiharwr) and it will tell you.
