You can check whether SQL Server is running or not in the windows services section. This can be done by typing services.msc in the run dialog box. Then you can find the service with the name SQL Server (your instance name).

If you want to get an alert when the service fails you have to write your own bat file to do so. You can configure this bat file by going in to properties of the service, then recovery and selecing the bat file to run in the drop down box of failure actions.

You can find a good example of a email sending bat file here http://www.paulsadowski.com/WSH/cmdmail.htm
