Are you towing? I say this because I towed with a heavy load and a 90 tune and the same thing happened. It was at about 76mph. Started decelerating and no throttle. At about 20mph, everything was normal. So I pulled over and set it to a 40 tune and haven't touched it since.

20-30 seconds of loss of power is not good i would have it checked out because that could be really dangerous to you and other on the road just think you are going up a speed hill and you lose power that would not be good
