There's two problems here. The first is because of the way regexp fields
are implimented subject: doesn't tolerate the unescaped/unquoted space.
So you'd have to write  'subject:"(Saúde Geap)"' to get anything sensible.

The other problem is that are treating the part within () as a quoted
phrase, which is not correct.

If you can build from source try the patch below [1]. With it, I think

   notmuch count 'subject:"(Saúde Geap)" OR subject:xplitz'

should behave more like what you want. Notice my use of quotes is bit
different that your original query.

Yes, this is the same problem as in your other report. I posted some
patches that should fix it, but they need more testing.
