Classic symptom of a bad "Main" relay. This relay (also called the fuel pump relay) is located in the dashboard near the left air vent. You can try whacking the dashboard above the left air vent, and the engine might keep running.

Sounds like a fuelling issue, which could be the fault of the main relay or it could be something else like the fuel pump dying or a blockage in the fuel lines or a million other things. If it starts at all then I wouldn't suspect an ignition problem. One of Honda's very few faults though is the main relay.
