Will is correct in the first sentence, but the answer should be neither will I.

Happy days to you too.

never works as a negative answer.
- so you would rather respond
"neither will I" ... or "Nor will I"

... for the difference between ´neither ´ and ´nor ´ ... let ´s have some native response ;o))

But, sure, you can ´t use ´so ´  ... you use "so will I" to confirm an affirmative statement:" I will continue to speak to him"   - "so will I."

... so sorry ;o)
But, "will"  ... will do well in both 1st and 2nd sentense ;o))

We would use "neither will I" most of the time. "Nor" is becoming old-fashioned and very formal.
