      It will not matter how much you have as long as you do not have it stored somewhere where you do not control the keys. So if you have it on an exchange move it off of there. If it is in a paper wallet or hardware wallet you are fine. Some of the online wallets will also be fine. If the company where you store your bitcoin does not support Bitcoin gold then you will not be able to get the bitcoin gold and that is why you want to move it off an exchange.

      Yes — You will not be able to just log in to your bitcoin wallet and see the coins. You will have to transfer the bitcoin cash out of the bitcoin wallet and into a bitcoin cash wallet. I did not have my bitcoin in blockchain so I am not sure of the exact procedures. For the most part all you would do is open a bitcoin cash wallet and then use the the same keys and passwords that you used with bitcoin in your blockchain wallet and transfer the bitcoin cash to the new Bitcoin Cash wallet.
