What have you been doing and why haven't I heard anything from you?
Explanation:
Mitä olet puuhaillut - What have you been doing, what have you been up to

Miksi sinusta ei ole kuulunut mitään? - It is not "sinulta" but "sinusta", and "kuulunut" instead of "kuulut". This is a passive construction, literally something like "why nothing has been heard of you" -> why haven't I heard anything from you?
