Chinese term or phrase: 有多遠
他問:「黑水街離白水街有多遠?」我說:「三條街左右。」

I have rendered the above question and answer as: He is asking whether Black Water Street is very far from White Water Sreet. I am telling him that they are about three streets apart.

I am concerned about the phrase 有多遠. Have I captured its meaning properly?

So, 有多遠? asks the question "How far?". Now I am wondering, if one can ask 有多時間 and mean "How much time?"

My thanks to everyone else for your many confirmations.
