Why isn't fratres et sorores in accusative and why isn't Marcus right after Quot?

Fratres and sorores are in the accusative plural here (it is the same as the nominative and vocative plural). They are both third declension.

Quot is an indeclinable adjective and has to go beside what it is modifying (if it is modifying another noun).
