From the bottom of your post up...

Excite DOES care whether or not you have keywords in your URL, like you described above.
As for the spaces, yes, you should go ahead and use them between your keywords.
As for the alt tags, Lycos, Webcrawler, Altaviste and HotBot do read the tags, but right now, only HotBot gives much weight to them and usually THAT, is only to grab a summary if it's used at the top of the page.

Good Luck.
