The "Strunk & White" badge is received after editing 80 posts. According to this, I would like to ask a question. Do retags count? And where to check the total edit count?

No, they don't. See List of all badges with full descriptions; from the Strunk & White entry:

Perform a total of 500 edits between questions, answers and tag wikis

  • Edits on deleted posts do not count
  • Edits to your own posts do not count
  • Edits to CW posts do count
  • Edits that consist only of tag changes do not count
  • Tag wiki edits do count
  • Edits you suggest before gaining full edit privileges do count, once approved

(emphasis mine).

You can use the old review UI to track your Strunk & White progress.
