You use "many" with countable nouns, and "much" with non-countable nouns.

"Money" is not a countable noun (in this meaning of the word).


I have much love for my family. (You can't count "love", the quantity is not measured in units).

I have many brothers and sisters. (You can count brothers and sisters)
