My baby really love to drink water, any time of the day. but am worried about how much is too much, also is it recommended to give water at night before sleep?

Dove is right, your baby should drink just a few ounces (2-3) of water at most, in a sippy cup. Didn't your doctor advise you on a diet for your baby?

Never. Breast milk or formula has the calories, nutrients, AND liquid that your baby needs and too much water can be deadly. Now... an ounce or two a couple of times a week in a sippy cup for fun and practice and a little bit of water is fine. I'd be very concerned if it were much more than that... and advise you to stop immediately.
