Depending on what you quantify, both are correct.

1. Use many and few for countable nouns.

I have many/few friends.
There are many more opportunities waiting for you.

2. Use much and little for uncountable nouns.

She has much/little money in the bank.
There is much more pollution in the city.

3. Use "a lot of" and "lots of" for both countable and uncountable nouns. Use "is/was" for uncountable and "are/were" for countable nouns.

I have lots of things to do today.
You'll be in lot of trouble if you get caught.
There is a lot of crime in Manhattan.
There are a lot of cars on the road at this hour.
There is a lot more pollution in the city than in the country.
There are a lot more people now than last week.

No. The ending -er on cheap already means more, so you can't have both more and -er. (And don't forget to capitalize the first word of every sentence.)

Travel by bus is much cheaper.

In my grammar lesson http://englishfather.com/nouns I learnt that 'much' is used in case of uncountable noun & 'more' is used in case of countable noun. I read some sentences with "much more". Can you explain it with some instances.
I followed that link and found nothing like that.

That information is not correct as it stands.

In any case, if you read through the posts in this thread, you should find the answer to your question
