Too Skinny Or Too Unhealthy?
I eat a lot of fruits and veggies a day (at least 1 apple, a pear, a carrot, salad, a banana)
1. Do fruits and veggies have a lot of calories
2. Will eating too many fruits and veggies in a day do more damage than good?
3. Witch fruit and veggie has the most calories?

You're supposed to get 3-5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. You're fine.
The average-sized piece of fruit (an apple, say) has about 80-100 calories. That's not a lot. Salad may be very low in calories if it's just lettuce and vegetables, but it will have more calories if you add things like cheese, croutons, bacon, and dressing.
Eating fruits and vegetables is important, but that can't be all you eat. You also need to eat lean protein and some healthy carbs. Protein is especially important, because it helps keep you from feeling hungry AND it includes some necessary fats. You need fats for brain functioning and other things.
If you are trying to lose weight, you should not eat less than 1200 calories per day.

In general, vegetables are very healthy. Fruit has a lot of sugar. It isn't a great idea to eat three services of high-sugar fruit each day. You'd be better off eating the same number of calories in lower-sugar/lower-carb foods including more veggies, good fats, and protein. No fruit or vegetable has a lot of calories compared to the food's volume, with the exception of olives and avocados. That noted, olives and avocados are really good for y0ou and have essential fats that your body needs.
It is better to think of fruit as a dessert.

Those foods are healthy. You won't get fat eating fruit and vegetables.

You can get fat from too much fruit. It is high in fructose, which too much of causes liver dysfunction that causes fat gain.
It would have to be over 10 servings per day, every day.
It's nearly impossible to get too much fructose from vegetables. Both are high in fiber, which regulates the absorption of the fructose, allowing the liver to rid itself of waste; to keep up, so to speak.
When you have something high in fructose and low in fiber, like sugar or juice, your liver is overrun with waste and dysfunction ensues, causing illnesses and in most people, obesity.
