Page Count - SEO Site Architecture Question

I have an page-count-seo-site-architecture question. My page count in google seems to have dropped from a high of 270 in mid March down to around 235 pages today.

1. Does it matter? Does more pages mean better search engine positioning?

2. Could it be because I've changed by site map structure. I used to list all my pages in the sitemap but it was confusing to my human users. So I have a short site map which links to an exhaustive siteindex. Is this a good idea? Is there a better way of accomplishing the same thing?

3. Is there any simple way of finding out which pages used to be there?
