What is the difference between "how much" and "how many"?

Welcome to the forum. :hi:

"How much" is used with uncountable nouns. "How many" is used with countable nouns.

How much water is in the ocean?
How much snow falls in Alaska in the winter?

How many cats can you see?
How many people went to your party?
