Is mechanical advantage the number of times the input force is multiplied by a machine?

it really depends on the machine you are talking about. there are 6 simple machines: the lever, wheel and axle, pulley, inclined plane, wedge, and the screw. Lever = (distance from fulcrum to effort) divided by (distance from fulcrum to resistance) Wheel and Axle = (diameter of the wheel) divided by (diameter of the axle) Pulleys = the # of pulleys used Inclined Plane and Wedge = (length of slope) divided by (height) Screw = (circumference) divided by (pitch) Hope this helped :)

Is it good to have a high mechanical advantage?

It may be good in some cases. A high mechanical advantage comes at a cost - you need to apply less force, but you need to apply it over a greater distance.
