Sounds like dirty battery cables. Remove cables from battery and clean battery post and inside of cables. When these get dirty the resistance builds up an alt. Thinks battery is charged. After cleaning you may have to jump to start. Other cause could be the alt, and or battery

Would a bad alternator cause the truck to stop running?

Yes, the alternator provides electrical energy to keep the battery charged. If the alternator isn't functioning, the battery will discharge and there will be insufficient electrical energy to operate the ignition and other electrical components. Understand that a battery is only an electrical STORAGE device. Electrical energy is produced by the alternator. The function of the battery is to provide electrical energy for NEXT time you want to start the engine. Once the engine is started, the alternator must take care of all electrical requirements of the vehicle as well as for providing enough additional electrical energy to replace electrical energy to the battery that was last used when the engine was started.

Why did car lose all power when engine was still running?

All power or most power? When an engine's alternator (which is a generator for everything electrical on a vehicle) goes bad, the vehicle tends to run until the power in the battery runs out. During this process, all the electrical components (radio, lights, etc) start dimming due to the engines electrical system giving priority to the ignition system (spark plugs, ICM or Distributor, etc). (Side Note: the battery is only used to crank the engine, not to run it.) Now if it loses all power, with the engine running, then I have no idea. There must be a major short and or quite a bit of fuses burned out.
