If you had no lease, rented on a month-to-month, and no documents stating an agreed-upon term of tenancy were signed, the landlord would, with no reasonable doubt, if prompted for any reason, put you out with as much notice as you left.
Ethic responsibility to pay him? No.
If he's so desparate for your $500, it looks like he'll have to invest more than that to retain a lawyer to prove that you actually lived in the apartment in the first place and, in the second place, that you had an obligation to notify him of your intention to leave.
NB: Month-to-month tenancy can work to the benefit and detriment of both tenant and landlord.
