It sounds to me as if your battery is fully charged on 5 cells and one cell is dead. Check the electrolyte level on all the cells and top up if required.

Leave the battery to stand for one hour and remeasure the voltage, I expect you will be at around 10v. If so discharge the battery by 10% of its voltage ie down to 9v using a 12v bulb then recharge the battery. Cycling the battery like this may bring back the dead cell.

The motor speed is not important, just tune it until you get the highest output voltage.

Sounds from the battery should be off gassing, it should sound a bit like a glass of coke and occurs when the battery is fully charged.
