There is a 100A B/R fusible link between the B+ terminal on the alternator and the battery positive terminal. The B+ terminal on the alternator should be hot at all times. There are also fuses #31 7.5A and #62 10A. I would check those as well.

I'd recommend getting some assistance from a certified mechanic who can diagnose your alternator and battery first hand. After this is done the appropriate repairs can be made.
