    correction

    Is this sentence correct?

    We don't as much money as they do/have?

    Firstly, is the sentence correct?
    Secondly, can we use here both "do/have"

    Thanks!

    Yes, it can. What's more, you could even leave it out as long as the people you're talking to know what you're talking about:
    We don't have as much (money/experience) as they do/have.

    Re: correction

    what does it mean:

    "leave something out" why did you not say simply "leave something"

    It means to not include/use something, in your case, to not include/use the word money in your sentence.
