My reverse lights don't work on my 2000 323CI 5 speed BMW when in gear

The fuse holder contains 10A fuse F27 which supplies power to the reversing light switch. When you shift into reverse with the engine running, the switch closes and the back up lights turn on. If the fuse is OK, you may have a defective switch

Battery drains when it sits for a long time.

Can't help with the 4x4,sorry.Fully charge battery hook up pos. wire.Then touch grd wire like you want to arc it.Watch close to see spark.If you see one then go to fuses. Pull one then check for arc if still arcs try another fuse,etc.till you don,t see arc.What's the fuse for? that's your culprit.Power drainers are horn circuits,brake lite switch,radios that should go off with ignition.Does that 4x4 switch work with key off?That could be drain if it stays on when you think it's off?

Back up lights won't turn on when in reverse

Possibly you have a bad neutral safety switch, or the reverse lite switch @ the trans. Get a test lite @ a parts store. Check all the fuses, then turn on the key to the run position (don't start the engine), set the parking brake! Put the car in reverse and check for power @ the lite socket. If you have power, change the bulbs. You'll have to get deeper into the elec. system if there's no power. Good luck.
