If you are talking about straight lines, the answer is NONE, because that is what noncollinear means. If curves are allowed, then the answer is infinitely many.

The shape identified by three noncollinear points.

Three

The answer depends on the number of point. One point - as the question states - cannot be non-collinear. Any two points are always collinear. But three or more points will define a plane. If four points are non-coplanar, they will define four planes (as in a tetrahedron).

Yes. You require three non-collinear points to uniquely define a plane!
