Is it permissible to tovel dishes in a bucket which I've left outside to gather rainwater?
Is there an issue, for instance, if there hasn't been rain for a period of time?

part 1 no can't dip in a bucket
can't dip in a KLI (vessel made to hold water)
Their is a way to stop something from being a vessel (make a hole that (if the kli was tomai it will) (taz (9) and shach 23 the size that an olive will fit though the hole) become tohor on bottom and cement it do the ground for it to be considered a building and not a kli)
part 2 sulchan aruch yora daiya 201.41 if put out a bucket by a gutter to collect rain water when the clouds were colected for raining and they did not seperate befor it started to rain the water in it are considered seuvim (gathered waters): not natural (from heaven) but from people and they pasul the mikva with 3 lugim when put in a mikva before it is 40 soa and if was put their before the clouds came and rained, then the water in it, is not seuvim so to use it for a mikva you need to brake the bucket or tilt it (but if you raise it it becomes sheuvim)
