At present days, it's common to have two astronauts/cosmonauts in EVA at the same time during ISS maintenance (or experiments or when expanding the station). But there was a time when three or more people were in EVA at the same time?

If yes, what is the biggest number ever reached and when it happened?

The current record was set during STS 49 on May 13th 1992: three people at a time.

A NASA website states that a three man EVA was done only once. Virtually all EVA's today are performed in pairs.
