Hi Emmanuil,

Much is usually singular in negative and question sentences:
Many is usually plural

How much money do you have?

Hi Emmanuil,

It is very easy to distinguish MUCH and MANY. The first thing you have to do is to recognize what are countable nouns and what are uncountabe nouns. MUCH is always used with UNCOUNTABLE NOUN. MANY is used with COUNTABLE NOUN in plural.

For example:
I have many books.
There was much discussion about the reasons for the failure.

Hope that you be satisfied with my answer.
