It sounds like there is a short in the alternator or wiring for alternator. You are continuing running with the battery cut off. But the outboard generates its own power and its finding the way to the ignition. As for grounding, you may be idling too high for a quick shut off.

It sounds like the manifold vacuum is low. This would mean the engine is getting more air than it needs and can not create the vacuum for fuel draw. When you choke it, the outside air is reduced and the vacuum goes up and more fuel is drawn in enriching the mixture. The raw gas can not atomize without the vacuum. You swing the other way when you dump gas without the choke.
If you can find a vacuum port to attach a vacuum gauge, you turn the airmixture screw until you have the most vacuum(highest) and then turn the mixture screw in until the vacuum just starts to drop. This is the optimum setting. Marine shops also use flow (meter)flaps to balance multiple carbs on a motor like they do on motorcycles.
You could get the timing checked because this will affect vacuum draw too. This site is suppose to have free manuals, but you may have to Browse the internet for other sources.
Let us know how you made out.
