Hello and Welcome :hello2:

If you are worried about the amount of food you are feeding her is there any way you can free feed her? Just leave the bowl of food out so if she gets hungry she can eat. I think usually puppys are feed 3 times a day until they are 6 months of age.
The breeder I got Koke from was only feeding 2 times a day, and she was a piggy. But when she got here there was alway food available for her and she nibbled all day.

For the chewing, it's normal for that age, but you don't want her to get the idea that it's ok to chew on you or the carpet etc. So what you have to do is watch her all the time and if she starts biting you or something she shouldn't, redirect her and give her something she can chew on. Like a toy or chew bone.
It's going to take a while, but she'll eventually get it if you are persistant.
Make sure you instruct your other family members NOT to let her chew on them, or she'll get confused.
