You should not do that. Alternators need power to make power. You can kill one dead trying charge a dead battery with one. It's called "alternator death". And as I said before.... it's not supposed to be draining the battery. It was not designed that way.

As for driving it enough..... All cars are like this. It takes a lot of power to start the car. A battery is like a bank account.... If you keep drawing on your battery without making enough deposits it will eventually zero out.
