Re: How Long Was Bruce Wayne Actually Batman in this Trilogy?
Some important info from TDKR (though it doesn't help give a definite answer to the question posed in the topic):
Alfred says that Bruce hadn't been down in the cave in a long time, but he apparently had been down in the improved batcave. He may have been there just to test out the new utilities, to use the bat-computer (such as how he was researching Selina), or was using it to actually fight crime as Batman, but that's all up to speculation.
The vision of Ra's al Ghul (speaking from Bruce's own knowledge, obviously), stated:
"You, yourself fought the decadence of Gotham for years with all your strength, all your resources, all your moral authority and the only victory you could achieve was a lie."
However, he could have been including actions taken solely by Bruce Wayne such as before the events of TDKR, when Wayne Enterprises still had the resources to do things like help the orphanage.
You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility... A survivor... unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.
