    Welcome to the forums.
    Unfortunately, I think the device is mechanically damaged to the point where it may not be salvageable. Or, if it is, it wouldn't be very cost effective to do so.

    That's a further sign of the internal damage.

    And if the USB is getting hot from being plugged in I'd refrain from doing that as superheating batteries is dangerous.

    You said you placed it "on rice." To be effective you need to take the back cover off, remove the battery, remove the SIM card, remove the SD card and submerge all the parts and the phone in rice. It should all be covered/surrounded by rice and no parts touching. Wait at least two days before putting the phone back together and trying it out.
