It's highly NOT recommended to install anything else in a Domain Controller. You can face many issues if you install SQL Server in a DC server.

Yes, this is a better solution. With VMs you can separate SQL Server from DC.

MS recommends to have not installed any other application on AD server. I would suggest you to have Separate AD server and SQL server.

you can have two different virtual servers on one physical server and with that you can achieve AD and SQL on separate server.
