Is there a grammar explanation?
Why for positive we can't use (much). For example: I work a lot
and for negative we can use (much). For example: I don't work much

    People just don't use "much" in positive statements, Madagascar. I'm not sure there is any special reason for this practice, but grammar rules are often arbitrary. You certainly have the right idea about when and when not to use "much".
