If all the connections are clean and tight at the battery it is likely. The alternator should put out about 14.2 volts when the engine is at a fast idle (about 1500 RPMs). Auto parts stores will test your alternator for free.

Yes, it is very possible that a small internal short in the starter or alternator can cause this. Sometimes the starter wires can lightly touch and cause it to lose a charge. There are a number of things that can short and cause a battery to die over an extended period time. You should probably consult a specialist because it can be difficult to track down.

Your Starter is either weak or the alternator or battery needs checked. Any of this can be checked for free at an auto parts store. Of course, you have to pull these parts off of the car first and then take them into the store.
