He read as much as John did. Is "much" an adverb here?
Is "as many as" a correct phrase? I don't mean here in the above sentence, on the whole. If yes give me an example. Thanks
"As much" is an idiom, but it functions as a quantity noun, meaning "the same amount". The following "as" is a conjunction of comparison.

Mike ate 20 jelly beans. John ate as many as John.
