Pinched nerves in the neck (or neck pain) do not cause any vision loss so it's not the cause.

Partial loss in visit field is either in the Brain or eye. So you should ask an ophthalmologist to see you in detail to rule out any clot in eye vessel.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
