How much money should I put in for investments?

To begin with, you should invest an amount that you would be willing to keep invested for long-term, say a period of 2 to 5 years. You don't have to necessarily block this amount for a long term and if price goes up in a few months time then you can very well sell the shares and make profit.

However, mentally you should not expect to withdraw your money for short-term needs. If the company you have invested is the right pick and you are willing to wait till the price goes up then you would benefit over a longer period of time.
