How long will the battery life last?

That varies from model to model. Certain models require more power consumption while others are very basic. But generally, you can expect between 2-4 hours battery life for most models that have a built-in battery. Also, you should get a model that includes an in-car cigarette adapter for constant use.

How do I know how good the screen quality is?

For better viewing, consider getting an LED screen rather than an LCD. Also, the higher the resolution, the better the quality. However, expect to pay a bit more for these features.

Can I play media from a USB or SD card?

If the portable DVD player have those ports then yes. However, be sure to look at the type of formats that it can play to make sure it matches up with the format of your video/audio/image formats.
