Multe is also a word in Romanian

No surprise. It comes from the Latin "multi".

I said much instead of "a lot" and duolingo got mad at me so I'm confused.

"Much" doesn't sound right to me in this context.

For some reason, unmodified ‘much’ is largely obsolete in English now. ‘It's snowing very much’ — fine; ‘It's not snowing much’ — fine; ‘How much is it snowing?’ — fine; ‘it's snowing much’ — weird.

It seems like "It is snowing very much" should also be an acceptable answer, right?

That does not sound like a natural thing to say.

That doesn't work in English, however you could say it is NOT snowing very much.
