While testing any application,you must remember all actions done before you found any bug.
That might be a 10 minutes before or from the start of the application till you find some bug.

You must provide all these actions in the bug report along with the all available logs, if GUI issues, screen snaps etc.

You can keep non reproducible bug as an investigative bug and keep an eye on that always when you perform regression. You have chance of getting it again when you do so. That time you can record all the steps to reproduce it.

If a release has 80 bugs, what would you say about the product?

"It depends" is the correct answer for questions about "the release with 80 bugs". It depends from the size of the project, from the severity and priority of the bugs and so on.

If the non reproducible bug causes system crash, report it as soon as you can with high severity but low priority.
