Count polygons and polygon area that intersect with raster values

Something tells me this is an easy task, but I can't figure out how to do this. Searching gave me no answers, perhaps I'm using to wrong search words.

Anyway, I have a polygon layer where I want to count the number of uniques polygons that intersect with a raster... or perhaps overlap is a better word. Also, I want to only include the higher values of the raster and have in the symbology removed the lower values, but I'm not shure if this only is a visualisation option or if it will work also in the needed calculations?

Second, I want to know the total area of the overlap between all the polygons and the rasters higher values.

Is my question understandable?
