So I went into UO hearing good things to find nearly no players... I left after a while when I realised maybe its dead? I heard of these shards but I was playing the EA one but I actually have no idea how this stuff works at all...

Im extremely confused to what im doing.

Simply:
Bought sub from the games website
Downloaded it
Created char and logged in....

Why am I finding nearly no one then?

What shard are you on? What time zone do you live in? What time do you log in?

 

Most shards are very low population at the best of times and at worst times they are dead as a dodo.

If you're on Europa try going to West Brit bank at 6pm, you'll find a meeting of people who get together each evening to help new and returning players, answer questions and just chat.
