Timing belt broke. does it have a distributor? Take cap off and note position of rotor if it has one, bump starter and note if distributor rotor moved, if not you need a timing belt. also you can look under the oil cap to see valves and have someone start it, you should see the rockers move, if not, belt.

Hard exceleration power loss


Volkswagen had a series of bad ignition switches that should be covered by a recall. Did you check if your car is effected by the recall? The result of the bad switch is very much as you described. Car just stalls on the highway.

Prelude shut down while driving, now will not start. battery good


motor will not turn over at all? well sounds like one of two things
1 you broke the timing belt and the pistons hit the valves sticking one thru a piston, thats why it wont turn over
2 you have a wiring problem keeping enough voltage from getting to your starter
