Thanks.
Many thanks.

Does "Thanks" mean "Thank you"?
Does "Many thanks" mean "Thank you very much"?

Thanks.

They are all just various wordings of "thank you".
I recommend not trying to read too much into tiny snippets of wordings. There are many ways to convey thanks. Each variation does not have a separate meaning. Thanks is less formal than thank you. Many thanks is just a variation of thanks, since using the same phrase every day, every time gets "old". They are all just "thank you".

One can also say "I appreciate it/that."

"I appreciate your help" is essentially equivalent to "Thanks for your help." (Though it's more formal, and thus perhaps not quite so "friendly".)
