I would like to charge my T4i battery in camera with a USB cable. Can I do that or do I need a special USB cable? If so is there a solar charger it can connect to? It's for a 14-day river trip.

As far as I know no Canon DSLR can do this (charge battery via USB).

But you can buy additional batteries and charge them via solar panel. There are different options for USB chargers, here is one example for LP-E8.

P.S. No affiliate with manufacturer and seller

You can't charge your camera's battery in-camera, at all. There is no battery charger circuitry in the camera at all. In order to charge the battery, you must remove it and charge it with an external battery charger.
