No, you would be "spurting" blood if you cut an artery as that's what carries the blood away from the heart. It has more pressure so it would spurt. However, a vein is carrying the blood back to the heart so there is less pressure, therefore no spurting just an ooze.

How much blood does someone lose when he get a big cut?

That depends entirely on the size of the cut and what gets cut. Hit an artery and they can die in a couple minutes. A slash across the ribs could ooze for a long time and never really be a problem. That is entirely dependent on the following conditions: Time of bleeding, diameter of the artery or vein, location of the artery or vein. Blood pressure at that moment. Viscosity of blood, extension of the cut, and perhaps some more factors.
