There are lots of estimations about how much data is used by Skype by video calling, but no official info from Skype.
Some estimations put it at 5MB or so for 10 mins, which would give you many hours of video calls, others state that a half hour call can use several hundred MB.
The best thing to do is check it yourself. Make sure you have the latest version of Skype, and then use the built-in Call Technical Info option to see how much bandwidth is being used.
There is 1000kb in 1MB and 1000MB in 1GB, so once you know roughly how much is used per minute or second by Skype video calls you can figure out how many hours you'll get from your 3GB.
