If the battery dies with the car running usually the alternator will be able to keep up, but the malfunction indicator will light up. Some models will say something like check gauges. You alternator or voltmeter will go real high. If the car is completely dying then the alternator is failing or you have bad or loose battery connections.

Try checking the connection. Wires may be loose. Or maybe a bad ground from motor to chasis.

No, that will have no effect on the battery.

Check all electric system, mainly alternator. Alternator's brush may be worn out.

You will destroy the voltage regulator if you unplug the battery while it is running, then you will have to replace the alternator anyways.
