From Kepler's laws (third law actually),

The squares of the sidereal periods of planets = cube of the semi-major axis

For Earth, the semi-major axis = 1 AU and one sidereal period = 1 year.

If the distance is half, ie., 0.5 AU, the period will be

P = sort(0.5^3) = 0.35 year (I am neglecting the extra decimals here).

                             ~ 129 days.

What this mean is, forgetting all the other effects the number of days in the year will be around 129 days.
