Which type of conduit you are talking about EMT or PVC { they do have shed 40 and shed 80 } or rigid conduit ?

those will affect using the max number of conductors in there and what you are plan to use this for ?

You may run four #6 THHN copper wires in 3/4" EMT
You may run four #6 XHHW compact aluminum wires in 3/4" EMT
