No power? Do you also have No headlights? No horn? No radio? If so, check: 1. Clean the inside of the battery terminals 2. Check for blown fuses, fusible links, and relays

Did you charge the battery after you bought it? New batteries are not fully charged when you buy them new.

No. It does not require very much power. If the battery is not putting out enough power to turn the starter, but is putting out some power it may still work. If the battery is totally dead it will not work.

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.

If the battery is going out will the alternator still power the car?

the battery job is to start the car so the alternator will kick in after the car is running
