    It could be quite a bit of things, but a common one is dirty intake. The car idle fine when you start because it uses the idle air control motor, but when you give gas and let of the pedal, the throttle closes faster than the IAC can move, and since there is no space for the air to pass around the throttle plate, since is too dirty, it kill the car. I have run through this problem many times. But it could be a bad IAC that is not responding fast enough too. You would need to give more detailed symptoms since this is a very common problem.

Sounds like you are running out of gas. When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? PO 300 means there is a miss fire which can harm the catalytic converter. It could also be a ignition problem. Coil pickup. Without hands on diagnosis it is hard to exactly pin point the problem.

Coils and wires are the most likely culprits as they never get replaced hardly ever. You cant really test a coil, you can check for resistance on the plug wires but that doesnt tell you if the insulation is bad on them.

It idles briefly since it gets gas from your cold start valve. This means your cold start valve is good.
It dies since after that cold start valve will close as it designed that way so fuel from injectors will take over. But apparently fuel is not coming from injectors. And injectors is controlled by injector module. Injectors are normally closed until injector module tells them to open.
Check out your fuel injectors and Injector Module.
You can buy NOID from any auto part store to test your injectors. If there is no light on then there is a problem with Injector Module. If there is light on the injectors then bad injectors.
Here how NOID looks
