You can still have leakage, causing a slow drain to the battery. Its not necessarily an on/off type failure. When did you purchase the battery, or about how old is it? Is it a crappy brand?
More than likely you have one of three scenarios: Bad battery, bad charging system, or loose connections. It died when you went to neutral because the wheel wasn't connected to the drive train (and therefore the charging system). If it were a fuse, then you wouldn't get intermittent power to the dash.
I can PM you pages of the manual (for my 03) that give instructions for troubleshooting battery/charging system issues.
