I accidentally broke off the top of one of the branches and now there is a gap where leaves used to be.

Are they likely to grow back over time or will the plant just not bother as there are plenty of other healthy leaves on the plant.

If so, how long do you think it will take? It's been 3 weeks since the accident and doesn't appear to be any development yet :(

Yes, new leaves will emerge at that point although it may lose a few of the older leaves just below. It could take a month or more before you see a new bud. Be patient because there is nothing you can do to hasten the process.
