Initially I wanted to speak "made a lot of progress", but my tongue somehow slipped and it became "made many progress" - I am a bit uneasy whether it is natural in English.

Is "made many progress" natural and proper in English?

the hypothesis has been substantiated by many facts. It's obvious we have made many progress.

There was nothing really wrong with a lot of progress although some people think it is too informal for writen language. However your unease is justified as much progress would have been correct. You would have used many if it preceded a plural noun.
