cycling dry rock and water changes

I have a question. I am starting a 75 gallon tank. A friend gave me his rocks from a tank he ended. The rock was in a plastic bin (no water) in his garage for about 6 months. I got the rock about 4 weeks ago and place them in 50 gallon bucket with of saltwater with a heater and pump. I'm finally ready to fill my tank with water. I don't plan on getting any fish or coral until the end of April or May. Two questions, should I do a water change in the bucket that I currently have the rock in? When I move the rock into the tank should i use new salt water or should I use the water that the rocks have been in for the talk 4 weeks?
