Re: Photos are coming out foggy.
It could be. One way to attempt to find out would be to take a picture with the lens cap on. You'll have to go to Manual mode and take a guess as to the exposure. I would also investigate the possibility of a dirty lens. If you have another lens, try that and see what the pictures look like.
I assume you're not using expired film, nor subjecting the film to extreme heat or humidity.

They can't. You've destroyed the shutter assembly and it must be replaced which is a professional job. You cannot simply push the shutter blades back into place and expect them to work correctly; they're a precision assembly manufactured to very fine tolerances.
N70's are now near-worthless, so repairs make no economic sense at all. Just look on FreeCycle/Freegle and get a replacement for free: it's where I get most of my Canon and Nikon 35mm SLR's and also where I get occasional Mamiya or Bronica medium format models.
Press the SET/timer button (top left of the camera, behind the FUNCTION button, marked SET with a one-handed clock icon) and confirm that the one-handed clock begins blinking on the LCD panel. While pressing the SET/timer button, rotate the command dial one click to stop it blinking. Proceed normally (frame and compose picture, half-press shutter release button to meter and autofocus, etc). Fully depress the shutter release button to take the picture after a ten-second delay.
If you need a manual, you can download one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm . Look for "N70", which was the name used in the USA.
I'm unfamiliar with the F80 but on models like the f65 and f75 the viewfinder screen has an lcd overlay and when the battery is exhausted or removed the viewfinder goes dark and blurry.
Looking at a picture of the f80 it looks like it's just an update on my f75 so it strongly suggests that you just need to insert a fresh battery. The lcd does draw power from the battery even with the camera turned off.
I hope that you found my answer useful, once you've tried another battery to confirm what I've suggested I'd appreciate it if you return the favour by rating my answer.
Not necessarily. The EM has an M90 setting which will fire the shutter at 1/90th of a second. The meter is inactive on this setting. It was put on the EM so that if the batteries fail, you can shoot at 1/90th and take a guess at the exposure. There is also a small button (blue or chrome, depending on the production run) which lights up a red LED if the batteries are good. The light meter doesn't work until the frame counter is at 1 or higher. Before the #1, the shutter will always fire at 1/2000th of a second to speed up the film loading process. You can tell that the meter is working by observing the meter's scale/needle on the inside of the viewfinder. If it is pointing out of the red zone, it's OK to shoot (proper exposure). If the needle is in the red zone (indicating under or over exposure) the camera will "beep" as an audible warning. Check the battery condition first.
