Can a loose positive battery cable prevent the alternator from charging the batter and can it cause a battery drain while the engine is not running?

Yes, a loose battery cable will prevent the alternator from charging the battery. The drain on the battery is not caused by the engine not running unless an accessory is left on. Most likely, the drain is caused by accessories (radio, lights, etc) while the engine is running due to the battery not receiving its charge from the alternator and then not having enough charge left to start the engine.

Why would the battery in a VW Jetta not be getting any charge if it has been replaced but you still have the same problem?

You need to check if the ALTERNATOR is giving the correct output so as to charge the battery. By having a volt meter across the batery terminals one can then rev the engine and the voltage accross the battery should be about 13.8 volt indicating that the Alternator is charging the battery. If this 12 volt bateery voltage does not increase, this indicates a charging problem (mostly with the alternator either the brushes or one of the diodes in the alternator).
