    How much/What is the total amount of money that is/was held.

    1) How much/What is the total amount of money that is/was held by the bank as collateral for my credit card?

    * Should I use how much/What is the total amount of money or both are usable?

    "How much" is shorter.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
