No. of possible electron transitions in hydrogen in magnetic field

A hydrogen atom is in the n=3 state. Given that a magnetic field is present, how many photons of different energy can we observe when the atom de-excites to the ground state?

Do electrons in the same n-state but with different angular momentum quantum number and orbital magnetic quantum number have different energy levels? If so, what effect will this have on the possible number of transitions?
