How many touches does an average soccer player get in one game?

a soccer game is 90 minutes, there are 22 players in the field, if you say that a player touches a ball 2/3 of the time, 60/22=almost 3 minutes. This is an estimate, for a striker will have far less ball contacts as a midfielder.

What is it when a player touches the ball in soccer?

What I think you meant is, "what is the penalty for deliberately handling the ball?" If it is deemed to not be deliberate, then there is no offense. If a player deliberately handles the ball the other team is awarded a direct free kick at the location of the infraction. If it's done by a defender inside the defender's penalty area then a penalty kick would be awarded instead.

How is the ball put back into play when an offensive player kicks it over the goal line without scoring a goal in soccer?

If the ball crosses the goal line and was last touched by a defensive player then there are two possible restarts. 1. If it crossed between the goal posts and under the cross bar, then a goal is awarded and the restart is a kick-off for the defense. 2. If it crossed outside the goal posts or over the cross bar, then the restart is a corner kick for the attackers.
