Yes, URL plays one of the important role for Search result and SEO terms for either custom domain or blogspot. However, blogspot by default will either take 5 words or 35 max characters including spacing from Title of the blog post. Thus, you have to use effective keywords within this limit in order to achieve something for organic traffic.

There are some procedure in blogspot to tune/change the already published URL from the default Title, however, it will again take time to grab the attention of search engine despite modified URL.

URL plays important role in Google ranking and get indexed the website in google. Too long url may affect your ranking on google and may may hurt usability and click-through rates. As a normal practise,average length for GoogleBlog is 76 characters and average length for InsideSearch is 81 characters.
Long URL are rejected by apache server too only if The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.
