Absolutely.  Those errors look like out-of-memory errors to me.  What
does top look like when that happens?  Is all your memory used?

Generally you want at least twice as much swap as you have RAM,
although the exact number depends on your usage.  Having too little
swap gives you a very slim margin of error.
