yes whatever the humming noise is could be killing your battery. anything that stays on too long when the vehicle is off can kill it. can you pull the fuel pump fuse and see if the humming goes away?

If those options did not help check your alternator, when a alternator is going bad it often drains all the life out of a battery in a few days and when it is completely dead will drain it in a minute flat
