You can place the function in another file, but you need to use the
'file' parameter on your batch array. And there in lies a problem I see:

It should be 'file' => drupal_get_path('module','mymodule').'/mymodule.admin.inc'
File needs the path on batches, unlike when you use it on a menu or theme item.
