If you’re talking about things that can be counted, use “many”:

  • too many children
  • too many balls
  • too many hot dogs

If you’re talking about things that cannot be counted (mass nouns), use “much”:

  • too much stress
  • too much air
  • too much water
  • too much traffic

Be careful with “money,” “homework,” and “time”: although each seems like a countable noun, we use “much”:

  • too much money (but too many dimes and nickels)
  • too much homework (but too many homework assignments)
  • too much time (but too many minutes and seconds)
