Is there a certain thickness of plywwod to use? I just need to cover the frame to hold the tiling, but I want it to hold up is 1/2 sufficient or do I need 3/4?

Use 3/4".

Be sure to allow room under the tub (Between the tub and the plywood) for: The thickness of your backer board and the thickness of the tile.
