What's too much or too little when it comes to sex with yourself is very individual, and about what feels like too much or too little to you.
Do you feel like it's too much? Is your masturbation interfering with the rest of your life, for instance, making it hard for you to do other things you want or need to do?
Masturbation being a habit is not automatically problematic, because masturbation isn't bad for you. Are you perhaps trying to express that it feels compulsive, like something you do even if and when you don't want to?

As long as it isn't interfering with the rest of your life (so you aren't missing out on other things to masturbate) then there isn't an amount that's "too much". If it is becoming a problem, then it's a compulsive behaviour, and that needs to be addressed by a mental health professional.
