The first thing to happen was my A/C shut off for an hour or 2 and started right back up, then 2 days later my car died at a stop light. Now its so bad that it did it yesterday while I was driving down the road. All of this while the A/C is on but it is just fine as long as I keep it off.

your A/C compressor is seizing or overcharged. Thats just my opinion of course but my car did the same exact thing and theres not much else it could be. You shouldnt use your A/C until its fixed or it could possibly cause more damage.
