The dead battery has resulted in the engine computer losings its memory and this is affecting the idle control causing the stalling.
Repeated cranking with a half-charged battery can cause the starter to fail to work. I would sugggest getting the battery fully charged, which requires quite some charging time if it is the non-maintenance type and has been drained.
The computer needs to relearn after power is restored and it takes some time too and with the battery charge in poor condition, it would be more difficult to get it to run correctly. Cleaning the throttle body and IAC would help speed up things.
