Did you check the voltage after a drive or after it was jumped. The battery may need some time to recharge if it was jumped before it gets checked. Have you checked for a possible draw on the battery? This could be a reason it dies every once in a while. I think that the Alternater is on its way out, it doesn't sound like it is charging like it should. It the new belt tight enough(some new belts stretch after a short time)
when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates
