If I skipped one period while on the pill, should my next period be shorter than normal?

In brief: Not likely

If one does not experience any breakthrough bleeding from the missed pill, then the period should occur at the normal time and duration.
Hopefully, backup contraception was used to prevent conception from a missed pill.
