Distilled Water for Battery?

This might be a stupid question; we were given a lawn mower with a dead battery. I charged it; no joy. My son bought and installed a new battery and all is well.

So, I look at the date of the old one and notice that it is lighter than the new one. It was never filled! No water in it at all.

2 questions:

Can I fill it with distilled water?

Did charging a 'dry' battery damage it?

Not boat related, but a battery is a battery.
