A jump can cause all kinds of problems, but it is easy to reduce the risks.
When jumping, make sure the good vehicle is turned off before you try to start the dead car. It's that simple. Run the jumper vehicle all you want, but don't EVER have both vehicles running at the same time or while trying to start the dead one.
With the dead battery, a long slow charge over 24 hours or so at less than 2 or 3 amps may bring it back. The modern chargers pulse to condition the battery, so a good one can help a lot! At low amps leave it connected. High amps take it out of the car!
