1. How many sons does that master have? And what about the rest of that sentence? Rethink this sentence in these ways:
Son - nominative singular
master's = of the master - genitive singular
used to give - singular verb in imperfect tense
money - accusative singular
to men - dative plural
in front of - use a preposition
the temple - (the case will depend on the preposition you decide on)
Fix this sentence and let me know what you decide on.

Just one but the I thought the I was for the genitive case or it would just be filius?

"Son" won't be in the genitive; only "master's" will needs to be in the genitive. It's the possessive. So yes,
In English, "used to..." is one way we can
translate the Latin imperfect. Scrap having two words, and just use the correct imperfect form of dare for the main verb in this sentence.
pecuniam is right, but I still don't see the prepositional phrase you need to end that first sentence.
