This happens quite often but does not necessarily mean that your iPod needs service.
Launch itunes first, (not by plugging in ipod and allowing to launch automatically.) Then, plug in ipod. After you see it load into itunes, you can use the ipod restore function. You'll lose your music but you it will restore all of it after it resets.
Temperature is a huge factor in the battery life of an ipod. Excessive heat and cold can kill a battery almost instantly in some cases. A 20GB is a bit antique anyways and even if you fix the battery, the hard dive is sure to follow. Hard drives are only designed to last about five years and then then wear out. I would recommend an update but you can try fixing the battery.
