Moto Z Sound goes out / won't charge

About a month ago, my Moto Z started having sound issues. I would try to make a phone call and the person on the other line could not hear me and I could not hear them. I found out that other sound apps, (ex YouTube, Marco Polo) would not work either. I turned my phone off and turned it back on and it worked fine. At first I was doing this about once a day, now I do it as many as 5 or 6 times a day. About 3 weeks ago I noticed that when the sound was out, the phone would not charge as well. If I put my phone on the charger and notice that the lightening symbol is not showing, I test the sound via you tube. It never works and I have to turn off/turn back on for the charging to begin. I took it into the local Verizon store last week and we did a hard reset. She sent me home saying see it that will work. Within 3 hours, I was having the same issues. Do you suggest any other troubleshooting? Thanks!
