Answer me Electrostatics!

Any given solid angle can have infinitely many field lines passing through it. Which means as we go away from a point charge we always have ‘infinity/area’ as the surface field density(through some imaginary surface). This is logical and appears more real than the assumption of a fixed number of field lines passing through a given solid angle. In such a case, how does one explain that the field intensity decreases as one goes away from the point charge in terms of Gauss’ Law?
