Arrow volvo 940 dying and not getting fuel

so my car battery has been dying if i don't connect a wire from the battery to the back of the alternator when i first crank it to like jump the alternator i guess, because thats what someone told me on this forum when it started dying. so i tried it a few days ago when my car wouldn't start to keep a charge and it seemed to work until tonight. It died after driving it for about 30 minutes which i had driven it previously tonight for about an hour and half so i called another buddy to jump me off because i was stranded on the side of the road it just shut off and the lights started flickering. when he jump started me i touched the wire to the battery and alternator and it sparked i drove it about 15 minutes back to my buddys house and then we let it set for about 2 hours then i had had to drive it about 15 minutes to a gas station and it acted like it wanted to die so i turned it off and re cranked it and it kept acting like it wanted to die so i was under the hood reving it and it made a loud pop it sounded like it came from the under the hood then started back firing which it does sometimes and it started idling right so i got in and it started acting like it wanted to die again but still i just drove it with it back firing and idleing then about a mile from my drive way it acting like it wasint getting gas like it was just taking every thing the car had to make it down the road. i cant figure out whats wrong ive taken all the relays out and checked em checked all the fuses the battery is fine it may be the alternator but that wouldn't explain the fact it was acting like it wasn't getting gas, and i keep hearing a zapping sound coming from behind the radio which i installed a new radio recently and ive looked but cant find any wires touching but sometimes my headlights don't wanna work but i can turn my headlight switch one time and the dash light comes one do it twice and no dash lights and no headlights but if i giggle the wires and dick with it they come on so i'm going wcrazy trying to figure it out please for the love of what ever is holy help me
