My LHBS only carries Munich in a can and it's a 50% blend of pale and munch. So if I have a recipe calling for 3# of Munch LME does that mean I should use two cans?

No, unless the recipe were to say "100% Munich Extract" or something like that then they more than likely mean the typical munch/base malt blended extract as that is what is the most common.
