What is the average number of outlets on a #12 wire 20 amp circuit and how many lights also can be on it( is not for kitchen or bath nor single dedicated);
Also what is the max space allowed between each outlet?

Under the NEC there is no limit to the number of receptacles on a circuit in a residence. Lighting loads are determined by the largest size blb that cn be installed.

Habitable rooms require no space to be more than 6' from a receptacle.
