有道:
she survived her husband ___ many years.
answer: for

我查了词典,有例句he survived his wife by seven years.

我想问:这里的介词是否与确定数字或不确定数字有关?

看来两种用法都可以

并且与是否确定数字或不确定数字无关。用 by 更多一些:
Results 1 - 10 of about 242 for "she survived her husband by"
Results 1 - 10 of about 61 for "she survived her husband for"

而且不用介词也行:
She survived her husband eighteen years, and lived to see the prosperity of all her sons.
She survived her husband a long while, for she did not die till the sixty-fourth year.
She survived her husband many years, living till upwards of seventy.
She survived her husband 6 years, dying on July 7, 1880.

还有用 of 的,但意思当然完全不同:
She survived her husband of 38 years.
