Hmm, battery being dead after a month is normal. Typically, you want to keep it on a trickle charger or drive it once a week to keep the battery charged.

As for the no-start, do you have spark? That is, pull the cable out of the center of the distributor, stick a spark-plug in it and rest on the distributor housing. Crank, do you have spark?

Fuel is a little tougher to test. Pull fuel-rail, put little clear plastic cups under the injectors and crank. Do you have fuel-squirting into the cups? Make sure you put the spark-plug wire back in so you don't ignite yourself on fire. This test is the ONLY definitive procedure for fuel. You may have power to the fuel-pump and it dumps fuel out the end of the rail, but if the FPR or dampener is clogged or if you don't have power to the injectors, no fuel will enter the engine.
