I'm sorry but I honestly don't think 3 neons will do well in a half gallon bowl.

I thought they needed a heater also? And I don't think they will do well in a 1/2 gallon bowl... they need lots of room just like bettas.

1/2 gallon is pretty much a holding tank. I honestly wouldn't put any fish in there as a permanent home. Neons like shoals and therefore you'd need a larger tank to accommodate that.

neons are schooling fish so if you want them happy and swimming alot you need 4 or more and they are hyper little fish youll need a bigger tank for them, and a heater and a filter.

Yes, Otos are fine in a larger tank. I have 4 in a 10 gallon with my girl Gabriel.

Are you getting a larger tank or are you trying to put the oto with the betta in your current bowl/tank?
