If you let it rundown below 20% on a consistent basis, yes, it can cause it to fail. There are only so many cycles a battery can take. Your problems sounds like a bad/dieing battery.
You may also just have too many apps running in the background, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, a map app, etc. Check our FAQ for an article on how to maximize battery life.
As for a vendor, go to your T-mo store and get a genuine OEM replacement for your exact device.
