Yes, pulling out crown prolongs battery life, but this is only for allmost unnoticeable period of time.
With the seconds hand there are only one solution- you have to take your watch to the nearest watchmaker as you will not be able to deal with it without appropriate knowledge and skills.
There can be two reasons why the seconds hand is jumping:
1) Fault within integrated circuit ( watch 'brain' is not giving an impulse in a specific period of time),
2) Few teeth may be damaged on second wheel as well as there can be tiny dirt particles sticking onto it.
Both need attention of professional.
If that seconds hand do not annoy you too much, wait till the watch needs battery replacement and then replace battery and check the watch at once. It will be cheaper then to do both jobs separately.

It is very possible that the battery is old. They sit in the stores for a while before selling. Good brands of batteries are recommended but not a guarantee of a fresh one. Batteries can be poorly made, lack a proper charge, etc. from the store. I have installed three batteries before on the same watch before finding one that worked. I sometimes have bad luck. I buy batteries in bulk and replace as necessary now.

I had the same problem with my Tag. Same 4 second jump. It's definitely the battery. I'm surprised at only 3 months, but maybe it sat a while in the display case. Mine was over a year and a half.
