You need a new distributor, these are a common problem and available new at just about any auto parts store. There are three inductive pick-up coils, a module and coil inside this thing and they go bad. You could try changing the module first, but they are non returnable, if it doesn't fix it, you're stuck. If it does fix it, chances are, the pickup coils are on their way out soon.
I would just get the whole new unit, about a 100 bucks on Ebay, $185 at the store.

other than the timing belt being broken, it sounds like the crank sensor in the distributor. get a used distributor. but first pop cap off and see if it is turning with engine.

Could be fuel delivery; fuel filter clogged, worn fuel pump.
Does it still have battery power when it dies, cranks but no start? How long does it take to start again? When does this occur, engine hot/cold? Does it happen all the time or sometimes? How long does it run until it cuts?

Is there any reason that you have not checked the valve lash on the engine?It's really quite simple and if you have misadjusted intake valves the car will never start. Not to mention with while adjusting valves you will have to double check crank and cam timing twice (once at cylinder 1 adjust and once at cylinder 4 adjust)at the same time you will also be abble to watch dist.rotation and again be able to see that the dist rotor is in the correct firing position in junction with cam timing.ANYTIME a honda or acura has belt replaced you will check valve clearances,it changes with different belt tention on end of camshaft. when distributor was replaced was ignitor unit replaced,and coil (both inside dist. housing)replaced at this time?Hondas and Acuras both are notorious for failed ignitors and coils.(intermitantly even)this can result intermitant spark(either of the two) or weak spark when failing coil is problem. you may have spark but how hot is it?And last but not least ,most affordable but extremely coomon mistake...do not ever replace spark plugs on honda with anything but NGK spark plugs,if you use bosch ,bosch platinums you "WILL" see running problems and or no start!!!!!splitfire plugs will be destroyed within weeks in a Honda!And use nothing but a Honda Distributor Rotor. T.E.C is manufacturer of Honda cap & Rotors.You may be thinking to yourself how silly and anal i am about those things but i can say i have seen hundreds of civics,integras,preludes,with no starts,poor performance,etc,with customers"just replaced plugs,cap and rotor,they should be good they were expensive bill at checker said they were the best".hundreds of dollars later and driving out with NGK plugs and honda cap and rotor,lesson learned

Most of the time these distributor come with the ignition module did your, if it did and it has not been that long and is still under warranty, have it replace, if it did not come with one replace module.
