What do you mean "how many users are connected to DC and AD"?

How many users authorize by AD? If yes you can create query that show eg how many users authorize by AD for the last month.

You can create a powershell script and check lastlogon attribute.

Something like this

# Gets time stamps for all User in the domain that have NOT logged in since after specified date 

import-module activedirectory  
$domain = "yourdomain.com"  
$DaysInactive = 30  
$time = (Get-Date).Adddays(-($DaysInactive)) 
  
# Get all AD User with lastLogonTimestamp less than our time and set to enable 
Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=...,DC=yourdomain,DC=com" -Filter {LastLogonTimeStamp -lt $time -and enabled -eq $true} -Properties LastLogonTimeStamp | 
  
# Output Name and lastLogonTimestamp into CSV  
select-object Name,@{Name="Stamp"; Expression={[DateTime]::FromFileTime($_.lastLogonTimestamp).ToString('yyyy-MM-dd_hh:mm:ss')}} | export-csv c:\folder\OLD_User.csv -notypeinformation
