2000 honda civic, some days it will start and run fine all day. At other times its hard to start and will cut off while going down the highway or while at a stop light. Sometimes it will crank right back...

What have you done to check for possible issue ? Have you been current with the maintenance of your car ? When was last time you performed a tune up, to include air and fuel filter replacements ?
Do you have any codes or check engine light ?
The more detail information you can add, the better we can assist.

What causes 1998 Honda civic keeps dying?

Need way more information. What's in common when this hapopens? Are you stopped at a light? Slowing down? Shifting into 2nd gear? When you restart, is there a particular pattern or sound when it restarts? Is it hard or easy to restart? Does it start right up, or does the engine spin and "try to start" before it finally catches? And on and on. Try to isolate specific common issues and post those, please.

2003 honda civic cuts out when wet weather or car wash

Could be two different problems.
The ignition system could be shorting out and shut the engine off when wet, and the serpentine belt could be slipping when wet which would cause the alternator not to charge.
The battery light should come on if the engine dies.
