You can have as many admins as you wish. However take care, it's good to be careful too when opening the gates of your marketplace and give administrators privileges only to people you trust!

Can there be different levels of admin privileges?

Some people would like to have only one admin and other accounts with certain, but not all, admin privileges. Unfortunately at the moment this is not possible. As said before, all admins have the same privileges.
