'Abandonment' is when a child is left somewhere with no parent, ie, the child has been ditched somewhere. If the child is with one parent, it doesn't matter how long the other parent doesn't see it, it's never 'abandonment'.

Before the child is considered abandoned? Three months of physical absence and/or failure to provide for the child is considered abandonment and the courts may involuntarily terminate parental rights if a motion is filed for the same. It should be noted, however, that termination of parental rights does not automatically terminate child support obligation.

How long does a parent have to be out of a child's life before he is considered to have abandoned that child?

It depends on where you live. Even in the US, it varies by state, but it's generally 1+ year(s). Just to point out that in most cases child support--even if it's only paid because the court has forced it and/or it's only paid sporadically--is considered contact.
