To put this into perspective, for most electron accelerator facilities, 1nC is large. For us, we sneeze and we get 1 nC.

nC = nanocoulomb. It is the amount of charge. To get the number of electrons, you simply divide this by the charge of an electron.

For an electron, anything above 1 MeV is considered as relativistic. A a general rule of thumb, if the KE is larger than the rest energy, then you should consider it relativistic. At more than 1 MeV, most calculation of electron dynamics can be solved with a good degree of accuracy by assuming that the electron speed is c.

You can't find how many electrons with the energy value. You need the charge value.
