How long does it run before it shuts off? If in the 5-10 minute range I would probably suspect a dirty gas cap, specifically a plugged vent in the cap, or if say 15-20 minutes or so might suspect a coil starting to fail. If less than a couple of minutes though, or almost immediately, I would suspect old gas or a carburetor that needs to be thoroughly cleaned or replaced.

runs for about 15-20 minutes and then dies and wont restart, today i have tried to replace it with new oem honda carburetor and then it does not start at all, i have also tried to check gas cap by draining the fuel out in tub to see gas flows well when cap is on ( not sure any other way to check gas cap ), your guidance will be highly appreciated

Check for spark when it dies, could be a bad coil.
