Doubts on electric field lines and flux

Q1.Is the number of electric feild lines due to a charge DEFINITE?
Q2.If it is infinite, then the electric flux due to a charge should be infinite(flux gives the num. Of elctric feild lines passing through an area)?
Flux should be equal irrespective of the magnitude of charge.
Q3.If it is definite,then it will always be a natural number and cannot be a decimal,but when we take out flux for an Electron,it yeilds a decimal value.
E.flux~ magn. Of charge
Permittivity of Medium
Medium-taken to be vaccum(here).
