"A little" and "a few" are enumerators, so they act like numbers, not adjectives, so there is no comparative form. Just like you can't say "three-er", you can't say "a few-er". "Not much" and "not many" are actually much more common than "little" and "few" Very common: I don't have much water. Uncommon: I have little water. Very common: I don't have many books. Uncommon: I have few books.
