Depends on a lot of factors. Climate can effect how long a Basketball holds its bounce. Really cold weather (below 50) will cause a basketball to loose it's bounce rather quickly. If stored at room temperature, a basketball should hold its bounce for around 3-6 months.

Will more air in a basketball make it bounce higher?

Yes. More air in the basketball will make it bounce higher. Yes. Replacing the air with even a lighter gasses, such as helium, results in a higher bounce. It follows that, removing air or using heavier gasses to inflate a ball will result in a lower bounce. YES. Adding more air to the ball lessens the particles in the ball to bounce around.

If you take air out of it, it will bounce lower.After a while of putting air in a basketball it starts to bounce lower.
