Is the alternator wiring ok? there are two connections to the alternator the one is a bolt with a wire that wire should go to the pos terminal on the battery. the other is a 2 wire plug that should have power that is switched with the key. One other possibility could be a bad body/ engine ground so check them as well. (off of the battery on the neg side there should be a wire that attaches to the inner fender and there should be a big wire that goes to the engine )
Hope this helps!

Could be a bad battery, and or alternator, if the alternator does not charge the battery when the vehicle is running your battery will drain causing no start.

Yes, a car will keep running with the battery disconnected, although that is not a good idea with all the sensitive electronic circuits on cars today. You can fry something expensive quickly. It will keep running because all power to run everything is supplied by the alternator, not the battery.
Have the battery charged up again, and see what happens. I don't know why it went dead, unless you have a charging problem. Does the battery/alternator light go off after the car is started?
