Probably just a coincidence. If you ran your car for awhile with a bad alternator it may have taken it's toll on your battery. OR you may have gotten a less than par alternator as a replacement. Do you have a voltmeter? What reading do you get on it?
The ticking, it seems like you've read about it already. Replace that oil pump and put a new gasket and be rid of it!
