If the idling speed is low, it can cause the engine to stall and after disconnecting the battery the PCM migjt need to relearn to stabilise the idling speed.
The other contributing factor would be the transmission. If vehicle is set to 4WD and road surface is hard, the wheel would lock during full turns and this can cause the engine to stall if the idling speed is low.
Low fuel and inclines can cause the engine to stop as fuel is not being delivered correctly if the vehicle tilts so that the fuel pump strainer is not getting the required fuel.
If idle relearn does not solve the problem, the IAC and throttle body might need cleaning.
