I'm not a native, but I only use #1and #2.
Hi Teo,

"Thanks much" is also one of the ways to thank, but I am not sure if it is formal or informal.

No. I don't consider "Thank you a lot" acceptable in American English.

Hi,

Despite the hits, these sound very odd to me.

Thanks much.

Thank you much.

For Heaven's sake, who are these people who are constantly writing poor English on the Internet? How can they be so prolific, do they never sleep?

Best wishes, Clive

Hi Paco,

I was talking about Thanks much / Thank you much. You are talking about Thanks very much / Thank you very much. I guess you realize that?

As far as this matter is concerned, only Gutenberg.org is a reliable corpus. I'm not familiar with this site. Why do you say this, please?
