"hundred-and-one" equals "lots of", am I right? I have hunderd-and-one homework=I have lots of homework?

Your understanding is correct, but your example is not. "Homework" is uncountable. You also need "a" in the expression, and we don't use hyphens. "I have a hundred and one things to do for homework." "I have a hundred and one reasons to avoid homework."

Right, but the correct way to say that would be: I have a hundred-and-one homework assignments.
