how many radial nodes and nodal planes are there in a 3p orbital?

It's has 1 radial node and have a modal plane perpendicular to its main axis

How does adding on the nodes change the shape of the atom exactly?

The shape of the atom doesn't exactly change. The nodes split orbitals into multiple lobes, changing the shape of the electron orbitals.
