He has too much friend.

Is this correct?
If so, what is rule for using much for countable noun or should I use many instead?
Please clarify.

  • "Friend" isn't generally used as an uncountable noun.

    "Friendship" would be uncountable, for example. "too many friends" = count; "too much friendship" = non-count.

Much is always used together with an uncountable noun.
Many is always used with nouns that are countable. (Source)

As Friend is countable, many would be used.
(too many friends)

  • @Mari-LouA too many Friends, it's a plural noun.

    Then you should make it clearer in the answer. And I would avoid capitalizing "friend" too.
