    How would I say 'a lot of things to do' in French? I think it would be something like 'beaucoup des affaires à faire', but I am not sure if this is the best way to say it, or even correct.

    on dirait plutôt : beaucoup de choses à faire, ou tout simplement "beaucoup à faire, tout dépend du contexte.

    tu peux simplement traduire par "beaucoup de choses à faire" ou alors, de manière plus familière "un tas de choses à faire"

    Yes. Des, here, would mean something like 'of the' which doesn't fit.

    Plus de ça! is "No more (of that)!" for example. :)
