Yes it is possible to get a dud battery, but it is unusual. Chances are good that your charging system is at fault. Also depends if you just make very short trips, or use a lot of accessories while driving on these short trips....
the evaporator is freezing up, this then limits the air flow. if you stopped the vehicle and after a short time a very large pool of water would be leaking out of drain tube from vehicle (on ground under vehicle) confirming this. some water is normal. the evaporator thermistor or temperature sensor (thermostat) needs setting or replacing, or checking that it hasent fallen off of evaporator core.this then causes the air compressor to continually run and not cut in and out like it should, so it freezes up after longer operation. A/C system being slightly over full, or sticky/jammed open TX valve can give same symptoms also. take to automotive A/C place to check system with pressure gauge set

Check to ensure that the overdrive is on or you will be running at high revs in top gear. The airconditioning usually switches on another fan so that can help cooling. Often a cooling system can cope with lower speed running but faster and longer trips show up faults in several possible areas: thermostat sticking or only opening partially. radiator partially blocked. electric fan not operating. The above three should be tested. The timing may be out but it is set by computer and would have to have cambelt setting wrong to cause overheating. Waterpumps can wear the impellor but again is rare.

That means water/moisture is in the lubricating system. A very common reason for this is the vehicle is not driven long enough to be hot enough to evaporate naturally occurring condensation. If you don't drive the vehicle alot and/or short trips . a good solution may be to switch to synthetic oil.
