How long have you had the phone? Can you try a different SIM in the phone?

Be advised the S4 has reached 3 years of age and it's going to be prone to some software glitches since Android has come a long way since the 4.x days, but some of this sounds like hardware failure.

If it's under a year old since purchase, you can bring it in to a Koodo shop and they'll send it out for asessment/repair. If it's over a year old, you could find a local repair store in your area to see what the damage is going to cost, but this may end up being not cost effective vs upgrading the phone.
