#1 is grammatical.
#3 is grammatical
#6 and 7 are both grammatical but #7 is better usage.
too many + plural nouns
too much + singular noun
too many apples
too much money
(What do you think about that?
Don't eat too many apples.....
Because of the plural countable noun, 'apples', 'too many apples' is correct. Don't you think so?)
