The wire is sized to the maximum overcurrent protection device (Max circuit breaker) ampacity. This is listed on the nameplate of the outdoor condensing unit. Size the wire to match the breaker.

The wire!! The breaker is there to protect the wiring not the device plugged into the circuit.

How do you know if the AC breaker matches the AC unit starting demand load?

Read the literature for the ac condensing unit, or the tag on the outside of the unit. Minimum circuit ampacity= minimum breaker, wire and fuse size. Maximum circuit ampacity= the maximum size. Your circuit breaker, wire size and disconnect fuses should all be at or between those 2 numbers.

Can you have more than one conductor in a circuit breaker?

No. Each conductor requires its own circuit breaker. Be sure to match the size of the breaker to the size of the wire. Ex.: 15 amp breaker for #14 gauge wire/ 20 amp breaker for #12 hauge wire.
