Are both sentences correct? Do both share the same meaning? How do native speakers say about it?

(1) How much time does it take to get from Shanghai to New York City?
(2) How long does it take to get from Shanghai to New York City?

To the question "How long/much time ... take to do something," you'd respond

"(It takes) X hour/s"

and so indicating an amount of time.

That's why I think native speakers would choose to say either "long" or "much time" interchangeably.

Also note that "How much time do you need to do something?" is so identical as "How long do you need to do something [for]?"
