Sounds like a problem in logrotate.  Log rotation is not that hard a
problem.  I suggest you modify your log rotation scripts to adapt to
your configuration rather than the other way around.

Yes, you can combine mod_vhost_alias with regular name-based
virtual-hosting.  Simply put your vhost_alias directives in the
default (first listed) <VirtualHost> section and it will take care of
any requests not covered by other specific <VirtualHost>s.
