Check the battery to see if the sides are bulging in the middle. Do a spin test. Take the battery and put it on a flat surface, then spin it like a top. If it spins at all, the sides are not flat and the contacts are moving away from the contacts in the phone.

there are phone repair shops all over the place that can replace the glass quickly
the glass is fairly expensive but there are different qualities that increase the life of the glass on dropping
ask around , get quotes and consider having a person with experience do the job as it takes very little to break the phone full stop
