I would like to know if there is a minimum amount of time you have to own a stock to get the split? Or can I buy one day before it splits and get the split?

You can buy the day before it splits and receive the split. But why do that? Usually, the price is inflated and a couple of weeks after the split, the price will go down a tad, and then start back up. If you are interested in a quality company which is readying for split (CSCO), I would suggest you buy now.
