There are several things that went wrong here. It looks to have been placed into very heavy soil, which will not be good for this plant. They are very tolerant of dry conditions, but not so much wet. It has likely been overwatered. Too much or too little light can cause these symptoms, but usually too much light will be the culprit.

With all of these compiled, the plant has given up. Trying to correct from this point will not be likely. What I can do is offer some reading on how to care for these plants. This way, you can nail it next time.

Q. Will a new leaf grow where an old leaf died and fell off on a live vine?

The plant is very healthy and full, this is just something I’ve been curious about regarding pothos plants for a long time.

Not, usually, with these. This has to be forced, carefully. Cutting no more than 1/3 of the entire plant back at once will help promote branching, but eventually shortening it a little at a time will force branching lower down.
