how long will someone survive with bradycardia?

A long time: Bradycardia is not related to survival unless there is a severe bradycardia related to heart block. Bradycardia can be a normal finding.

It depends: Mildly decreased heart rates have no effect on longevity. Severe bradycardia can be immediately life threatening.

Bradycardia: Just means heart rate lower than 60bpm. This does not affect longevity.
