long a user logon on its account in a given time spell, lets say in a
day or month.

This information is not tracked in Active Directory or the logs. Even if you
turned on auditing you would have a lot of work analyzing log files to get
this information.

However, you can use logon and logoff scripts to track information. I have
an example VBScript logon script that writes user name, computer name,
date/time, and IP address to a log file linked here:

You can have a similar logoff script (configured in Group Policy) write
date/times of logoff. Then you can load a copy of the log file into a
spreadsheet program for analysis. One line is appended to the shared log
file for each logon and logoff. In Excel you can filter on users or
computers.
