Could be alternator but check alternator fuse and have alternator tested or you could use a digital voltmeter with engine running the alternator out put should be 13.5 - 14.5 volts. if not alternator faulty or check for damaged or loose alternator wires.

For the Brake light to stay on and the fluid is up...sounds like your sensor is playing dead......
For the battery to die after only (4) hours..you have a very big drain on the battery itself.....without the vehicle right here to look at would be very hard to even guess...electrical problems are a hands on chore...
I'd take it to your garage/mechainc

sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

Ive had this similar problem in the past with my 2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee. Ive found by putting the Jeep in neutral ...it started right away. Good luck

The only way the pump will run is if it has a live 12v dc supply to one side and an earth return to the other.
Most cars have the earth side of the pump grounded down to the chassis so I would go for the fact that you have a short on the loom or a faulty ignition barrel.
An auto electrician would isolate the pump wiring to see where the feed was coming from then repair the fault
