Might be a bad battery combined with a bad alternator, or a loss of fuel and spark together. Might be as simple as a really dirty air cleaner. Or maybe something related to fuel pressure, like a fuel pump relay, or even the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC). There are engine components, like ignition parts, that are susceptible to overheating and will just stop working until they cool. Might even be a faulty ignition switch. These are symptoms of "dying in flight" and there are many possible causes. You need to have a mechanic diagnose this.
