Chinese is the people, not the language.

Most likely because people base a lot of languages based off of country names, i. e (Spain-Spanish... France-French... Portugal-Portuguese etc..)
I already knew it's mainly Mandarin and Cantonese based on location.2

Exactly. I don't know why either. China has so many spoken languages (or dialects if its that), but maybe cause people just base a language based on the country's name. Like I always wonder, why do people say that Spanish is Spanish, is it because it originates from Spain? And why is French called French, only because its from France?
Lol no idea either.1
