SOURCE: engine light and battery light
No, and a new battery may not cure the battery light being on. A low or no charge condition will turn the red battery light on, a bad battery will not. A low charge condition could have turn the check engine light on. I would have it checked before I would start replacing parts.

P0442 is a medium evaporative system leak detected. Check your gas cap and make sure it is on tight and the rubber seal is in good shape. If it was loose, tighten it and the check engine light will exstinguish after a few days on its own. If not this usually means there is a small hose in the system that has developed a small split. It could be several other things as well, it is "usually" a hose. You need to take it to a shop that can proform diagnostics to locate the leak.
Here is a list of possable causes;
LEAK AT GAS CAP
EVAP PURGE SOLENOID OPERATION
INTERMITTENT LDP MONITOR FAILURE
EVAPORATIVE EMISSION LEAK DETECTION
LDP COMPONENT LEAK
