Sounds like the charging system needs to be checked out, should have it checked while the engine is running, should be 14.5V at the battery when it is charging, so if not the charging system would need to be looked at to see where the problem is. If that is an older battery, have that checked out also, if there is a bad cell, symptoms would be similar.
