The problem sounds like you may be having an A/C clutch cycling out due to being low on refrigerant. Another possibility is that the system is overcharged and is putting a large load on the engine, and then kicks out when it's over pressurized. Have the issue with your A/C diagnosed by a qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to have computer scanned for codes and to test the system in order to pinpoint the issue. You'll know exactly what needs to be fixed once this is done. Good luck.
