The simplest and cheapest thing to do would be to diagnose and repair the battery and running issue you currently have.
Changing an engine and pursuing a buildwith a 302 is a definite upgrade , but hoping it cures a battery drain and a no run condition is like amputating a leg because you have a headache.
Fix what you have first , get it running , learn something in the process. After yo get it running, think about the 302 build and do your research on the build.
I have seen too many guys get "into" a build and have the car scattered 60 ways for sunday only to get sidelined by something and then the project gets sold.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
