I assume that the word "time" is both countable and uncountable noun. Am I right?

However I cannot tell the difference between usage the 'time' as countable and uncountable noun. Could you explain it to me please?

'Time' when it relates to what a clock measures is uncountable but when 'time' means 'occasions' it is countable.

'I have seen her here many times (on many occasions).'

'She spends a lot of time here.'
