BATTERY KEEPS DYING

1981 Pontiac Lemans

Engine Mechanical problem
1981 Pontiac Lemans 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

The battery in my car keeps dying and it is the third one in less than 6 months and I just replaced the alternator. After 2 or 3 times of starting the engine, it dies completley and I have to jumpstart the car. Also while the engine is running, if I disconnect the positive battery terminal, the engine cuts off.
