    No. 'Much' is incorrect.

    Re: how suprised

    As a general rule, we don't use "much" before an adjective.

    How angry were you?
    I was very angry.

    How surprised was your brother?
    He was extremely surprised.

    How happy are you?
    I'm quite happy.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
