How many beats does a quarter rest get in 3/4 time, and how do you count it?
I think it would be 1/2 beat. I also wanted to know what note this is and how many beats does it get in 3/4 time.

This is a quarter note rest, it is not a note. It gets one beat of rest in 3/4 time.
Here is some information on music notation:
Rests last exactly the same amount of time as their counterparts do when played. Imagine a silent note. Any note will have to last a certain time. Here, the rest is a crotchet rest, so will last as long as a crotchet. If we count 1-2-3, 1-2-3, at any regular speed, a crotchet lasts as long as one of those numbers, in 3/4 time.
Imagine that rest is on beat 2. Count 1-2-3, 1-2-3 but don't do anything on 2. You could play notes on 1 and 3, but have no sound on 2. That's it!
It depends on what the beat is.
