I have a single switch in my kitchen and intend to get a feed from it to put in a double socket 2 meters away but going to connect it my single socket has 3 live and 3 neuteral cables already connected

My question is what is the max cable that can be connected to one socket thank for looking at this !

Probably a better question is how many wires will fit in the box? The electrical code specifies how much space (in cubic inches) is required for the number of conductors (wires) in the box. If you have a regular single gang box with 3 2 wire cables, the box is probably overfilled.
