Hot key in my Honda - literally!

The ignition key in my 2003 Honda Accord routinely is hot when I take it out of the ignition. Too, today I was told that the CCAs in my battery were low (427 instead of 625) and this is the second battery I have had since I bought the car new. Are the two related? Is the hot key issue serious?
