Does it matter how many teeth or flutes my end mills have?

Teeth do the cutting, flutes bring the cut material away from the part. The excerpt from our Tooling ppt is below! If you look at the formula for Feed rate here, you will also see that the number of teeth your tool has determines how fast you can move the tool across the material. By looking at this equation for calculating

The fewer the teeth, the more space between them. This is called chip space.
