does anyone know if alamy accepts photos from a D3400 camera? after I bought this camera, alamy began rejecting all of my photos.

Yes it does....with Alamy if they reject one photo they reject the batch and any other batches in the queue as they expect you to do your own QC. If the photo is technically reasonable it will pass...they don't reject on aesthetic grounds.

And once you get one bunch rejected they keep a close eye on you for some time.

I have found the best way to deal with alamy for me is to only submit batches of 25 to 50. Wait to see if QC accepts them then move on to the next batch. I would not ever put in too many at a makes those rejections far too demoralizing.

As others have said, Alamy is an "all or nothing" site.  I had one batch rejected early on, and discovered that.  I had included one "not my best" image in a set. That happened to be the one they checked, and it all went in the trash.

I removed that one from the set, and a couple others that I realized were in the same camp, then resubmitted. The batch was then approved (after I removed 3 or 4 out of the set of 100).

I now submit 50 to 100 at a time.  I have had 100% acceptance since that early batch, and now have close to 3000 images with them.
