Ditto on what both of them said above. If the battery is bad, maybe a shorted couple of cells, it might take on some charge, but will be weak, and a bad battery can cause you all kinds of grief. Your starter could be dragging as well when it is hot. They pick up lots of oil spillage and road grime over the years. A dragging starter motor will certainly take it's toll on the battery, especially when the engine is hot.
