What happens when an Ipod battery dies?

I have aquired my sisters old 3g ipod, she got a video one for christmas. It has been sat on a shelf for 2 months whilst I tried to get hold of a USB cable for it.
Last week I folded and bought a USB cable from ebay.
Nothing at all. I plugged it in and nothing happens. No Charging icon nothing. If the battery was dead would this happen? Or would It get charge from the USB and boot?
It was working fine when she discarded it for her shiny new video. All it has done is sit on a shelf for 2 months. And now it wont take a charge! Opening it and fitting a new battery wont be a problem. But I am loathe to buy one before I know more.
Help me metafilter youre my only hope.
