Here I think you want
ag = ag.split(';')
split() does not split the string in place, it returns a new list with
the split elements.
Also you are opening the file for writing (which will erase the
contents) before you read it.
Other than that your code looks OK. You might want to try writing it
without functions, I think they may be confusing you a bit and they are
not really needed here.
