Approved answer (verified by Ruslana)
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.

Anonymoushey ...can i say ...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.
