What’s the difference between those two, in English?

My instinct would be to render the phrase as {vagh tup neH ret}, as you have, but I could also see it being {vagh tup ret neH}, since {ret} is a noun and it’s possible that the {neH} should bind to the time expression as a whole, but I do think it makes more sense for it to bind to the duration itself.
