S1 Have you been in Paris much these late years?
S2 I am sure you are tired, if you've been out much this wet relaxing day.
S3 Come to think, I HAVEN'T seen her out much this season.
Is "much" semantically related to the preceding adverbial ("in Paris"; "out") or to the following time expression ("these late years"; "this wet relaxing day"; "this season")?
