We cannot use very with comparatives. Instead we use other degree modifiers like much, far, very much, a lot, lots, any, no, rather, a little, a bit and even.
Note that any, no, a bit and a lot are not normally used to modify comparatives before nouns.
Quite is not normally used with comparatives, but it is possible in the expression quite better, meaning ‘recovered from an illness’.
Superlatives can be modified by much and by far, and by other adverbs of degree such as quite and almost.
When more modifies a plural noun, it is modified by many.
When more modifies a singular/uncountable noun, it is modified by much.
