You could put  SectionPages field in the header. If the headers are are linked, the field will be in all headers.

I prefer a solution with VBA because I have to check 80 files one-by-one and each file has more than 3.000 or 5.000 pages... so it will not obvious which sections will have more than 1 page

OK. How about this?
Sub ReportSectionPageCount()
    Dim sec As Section
    Dim iPageNumber As Integer
    Dim iPrevNumber As Integer
    For Each sec In ActiveDocument.Sections
        iPageNumber = sec.Range.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber)
        MsgBox "Number of pages in section " & sec.index & " = " & iPageNumber - iPrevNumber
        iPrevNumber = iPageNumber
    Next sec
End Sub
