No need for an extra variable:

public Map<String, Integer> word0(String[] strings) {
  Map<String, Integer> result = new HashMap<String, Integer>();
  for (int count = 0; count < strings.length; count++) 
      result.put(strings[count], 0);
  return result;

Pretty straightforward.
No real improvements.
You could write your loop also as

for (String s : strings) {
    map.put(s, 0);

>> No need for an extra variable
I don't know.
Without that variable, for each iteration of the loop you'll evaluate
If you store that value in a variable, you only determine the length once.

(But I guess compiler optimalisation will do that for you)

Yup, in both cases.
