It sounds like you know you'll have to check voltages at the solenoid to see if or that's the issue or elsewhere to determine where the problem lies such that the starter motor gets insufficient/no voltage.

Regarding the battery charge issue, this is kind of a - how long will it take to fill up my partially full bucket - question. Without knowing the flow rate (alternator charging spec) and the size bucket (battery capacity) and how much water remains (how much it was drawn down), no answer can be expected to be precise.
