How many men survived Exodus?

Not many. Few actually. Let's take a look:
YLT Ex 12:37 And the sons of Israel journey from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, apart from infants;
... 
YLT Num 1:2 'Take ye up the sum of all the company of the sons of Israel by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names--every male by their polls; 
YLT Num 1:3 from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host in Israel, ye do number them by their hosts, thou and Aaron; 
YLT Num 1:4 and with you there is a man for a tribe, each is a head to the house of his fathers. 
YLT Num 2:32 These are those numbered of the sons of Israel by the house of their fathers; all those numbered of the camps by their hosts are six hundred thousand, and three thousand, and five hundred and fifty.
...
YLT Num 26:1 And it cometh to pass, after the plague, that Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, and unto Eleazar son of Aaron the priest, saying, 
YLT Num 26:2 'Take up the sum of all the company of the sons of Israel, from a son of twenty years and upward, by the house of their fathers, every one going out to the host in Israel.' 
YLT Num 26:3 And Moses speaketh--Eleazar the priest also--with them, in the plains of Moab, by Jordan, near Jericho, saying, 
YLT Num 26:4 'From a son of twenty years and upward,'  as Jehovah hath commanded Moses and the sons of Israel who are coming out from the land of Egypt. 
YLT Num 26:51 These are numbered ones of the sons of Israel, six hundred thousand, and a thousand, seven hundred and thirty.
As you can see from the verses above, ~600k men left Mizraim and ~600k men entered the Canaan after 40 years of desert wanderings. What does that mean? 

This means that the entire generation (the one that left Mizraim) died in the desert. God explicitly said that He is destroying them for their wickedness and unrighteousness. See Number 14:27-38. Only 4 men survived - Joshuah, Caleb, Eleazar and Ithamar. Even Moses and Aaron did not make it.

So what can we learn from this? The answer is simple. This story explicitly tells us that if we wait for God to correct everything and return us to the Torah, we will have to pay the price. Namely, the generation of messiah will be destroyed. It will be another Holocaust for the Jews. 

So we shouldn't wait for God and messiah and we should return to God and His Written Torah ON OUR OWN !!! This is the only way to avert this disaster, another Holocaust that awaits us.
