If the chain does not have a removable link you will need a special tool called a rivet extractor or chain tool. It fits on the chain and has a t shaped handle thay you screw in to force the rivet out of the chain. Do not force the rivet all the way out. It only has to go far enough for you to apply a twisting motion to disengage the links. THe rivet will be left protruding from the side plate. When you are done soaking your chain use a wire brush to remove a the rust . Use the chain tool again to force the rivet back through the opposit plate. It should look like the rest of the links when you are done.If that particular link is binding, bend the chain side to side gently until it frees up. When you are done apply a good chain oil to the chain link by link. Chainsaw chain oil works in a pinch. Crank the chain for a while on the bicycle and then let it sit for a bit to soak in. Carefully wipe the excess off and you are done. Spray lubes are alright for a quick lube but don't last especially in wet conditions (rain, puddles etc.) If your chain jumps while you are pedalling after this, you will need a new chain. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how many links should the
That is subject to the individual bike and the sizes of the chainrings and cassette cogs. No simple answer.
You COULD web surf for advice on "how to calculate chain size" on your own.
If you avoid cross-chaining you can run a shorter chain. I never go more than one cog beyond the cassette center opposite my chosen front chainring.
