the shot clock is 24 seconds, and it resets when it is shot once they get to the offensive side.

So basically 24 seconds. There is no certain seconds where they have to shoot it only across half court

There are limits imposed on the time taken before progressing the ball past halfway (8 seconds in international and NBA), before attempting a shot (24 seconds), holding the ball while closely guarded (5 seconds), and remaining in the restricted area (the lane, or "key") (3 seconds). These rules are designed to promote more offense.
