It sounds like a loose alternator belt. When the engine is running at highway speed, the belts get looser with heat and they will slip a bit. Either get a new belt or tighten the one that's on.

Yes it could be the alternator, or more specifically your voltage regulator which is part of your alternator. An auto elec should be able to test it
