Since ice is only mined in units of 1 how does mining drones work on it?Do they gather 1unit over time?

Mining drones are unable to mine ice(correct me if I'm wrong) the only way you can mine ice is with a mining barge/Exhumer.

You are indeed correct. Barge/Exhumer with Ice Harvester I or II's only. Mackinaw is king.

Also, mining drones don't come packed with Ice Harvesters, just the normal rock munchers.

I was in fact thinking of saving up for a Mackinaw for this exact purpose. I heard that with mackinaws you can harvest 2 pieces with one cycle with maxed skills.

The Mack always gets 2 blocks per full cycle of the Ice Harvester, unless your hold can't take the second block. No need to max out the skill. (Except for cutting down cycle times)
