Isn't jaka more for qualitative questions? Would ile work here, or is it only for countable quantification?

Not quite:

  • Jaka jest temperatura tego gazu? Niska, Średnia, Wysoka ... , exact answer is not required but allowed
  • Ile wynosi temperatura tego gazu? 40°C - we want exact answer

In (UK) English I'd ask:

  • "How hot is this gas?" if an approximate answer (e.g. []Cold []Room temperature []Warm []Hot) is sufficient;

  • "What is the temperature of this gas?" if I wanted an answer to the nearest °C.

"This gas is a breath"?

Almost. But in (UK) English I think "breath" has to be qualified, e.g.:

  • "This gas is one breath" - This gas is exactly one lungful of air.

  • "This gas is Einstein's final breath".

  • "This gas is human breath".
