Are there rocks glued to the top of the soil? Green leaves falling like that, after a month, sounds like maybe root rot.

Ginseng Ficus are fine indoors, within a foot or two of a south, east, or west window should be just fine. As for watering, it depends on the soil, the tree, the season. Do a search on chopstick method and you should find several detailed instructions.
