Heating Half Basement

I'm finishing part of my basement. It is a 20' X 14' space. The furnace/A/C is in the next room. I know very little about heating. How many registers/returns do i need for this space. What kind/size ducts do i use. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Like said dont know the heat loss here. But say 3 runs. Cut take off in top of duct and run 6" pipe to just off the outside wall use a 2x12 90o boot turned down in the basement ceiling. use 2X12 register. You say furnace on other side of wall. could you put a cold air return from this room to the cold air drop at floor line.
