I think "How much older are you" is correct, but you can also say "how many years older are you?"
Here, as far as my knowledge goes-
" Many " is used for countable nouns..." Much " is used for uncountable ones...Years can be counted...so using ' Many ' is appropriate, I think ...How many years is he/your brother younger to you? How many years are you older than him/your brother?
Great question! I'd put my money on "What's your age compared to your brother's age?" Because "What's your age?" is far more warmly and far more gently than "How older are you?" which sounds really pushy and does not have a gentleman's ring to it.
