Most likely a ABS sensor is going bad at one of the wheels.
The ABS will overlook a certain amount of erratic reading....the traction control will not....and/so it reduces your power.
You may see a ABS light next.
The shut off may be the fuel pump warning you of failure soon.....if your mileage is high.
If it does stop again....listen for silence from the fuel tank.
Get use to the slight buzz noise of the pump so you can detect that missing if the car does stop.
The pump should run constantly when there is oil pressure and when you first turn the key to run position it does a 2 to 3 second prime cycle.
