The squeak could be coming from a bearing on any of the pulleys or the belt tensioner or idler pulley, as you have noted a problem with the alternator, double check that one by remove the serpentine belt and spin each pulley. Also check that the belt tensioner is doing it's job and keeping the belt in tension, if it slacks while driving that might be a reason the alternator is failing to maintain an adequate charge to the battery.

How do i check the belts tension?
