did you notice that prior to this problem the phone was not holding a battery charge? if so, sound like your battery is dead and will no longer hold a charge. it also wont charge until ios boots up and loads usb driver. your best bet is to purchase and install a new battery. after installing a new battery, you may need to restore.

Other option is port assembly. easy to replace.
Remember, your pocket is the phone's worst enemy. If you have had problems getting the cable in, there may be two or three years worth of pocket lint crammed in there so tight that it looks like part of the port. be careful and sometimes getting the junk out fixes the problem.
battery could be a problem, but you would notice long time to charge, and short life. having to charge 3 times a day is a pretty good indicator your battery is toast.unklbyl
