Assunto:  How long x how much time
 
Mensagem:  What is the difference between how long and how much time? Can we use it in any context with any verb tenses (past, future, present perfect)? How about frequency of use? Which one is more common in speech?
For instance, if I want to ask about the duration of an event, meeting, etc would it be correct to say: How much time it will take? How long did it last?


thanks ,

Madá
