"How long" measures distance, length and units of time. "How much" is the question we ask when we want to measure uncountable things like air, water, money, time, information, etc. We answer the question in units, which we can count, and then we switch from "much" to "many" (e.g., "Question: How much water is in the ocean? Answer: There are many liters of water in the ocean.").
