Kein is used to masculine and neutral nouns and keine for feminine ones. Example: Es gibt heute keine Klasse ([die] Klasse is feminine); Kein Mensch war am Leben ([der] Mensch is masculine). I hope i could be of some help

Depends on which gender the word following it is. Like one would say "Ich habe kein Haus", and it would be 'kein' because 'Haus" is neuter. Or one could say "Ich habe keine Beziehung", and it would be 'keine' because 'Beziehung' is feminine. It also extends to 'keinen', and 'keinem', but those are just for their respective cases/genders.
