-How much money do you have? None -How much did you pay? Nothing I don't know why, that's just what I'd say!

Sorry, I am wrong- None goes with #1, while Nothing goes with #2.

Nothing is the answer to both. None and nothing depends on the sentence, but in general, "none" goes with "how many" while "nothing" can go with both "how many" and "how much." Examples: How many kids came over today? None How many times did you see Santa? None. How much did you pay for the turkey? Nothing. How much money did you spend? None How much turkey did you eat? None But "nothing" usually does NOT go with "how many."
