How long can they hold you in texas with no indictment, was charged put under $500,000.00 bond and they are holding mail

First, hire the best lawyer you can afford immediately. Cases don't solve themselves, and this is a serious offense requiring immediate representation.
How long can they hold you with no indictment? In felony cases if the State isn't not ready for trial you can apply for a reduced bond after 90 days. There are also options for an examination trial or writ of habeas corpus. All the options require a lawyer's assistance.
Do NOT discuss this case with the defendant over the phone. Many Texas jails record phone calls. Have this defendant file for a court appointed lawyer immediately. Most jails have an application or a pauper's oath.
