You gain exactly 3 life no matter how many of your permanents left the battlefield this turn (as long as it's at least one).

Your confusion as you describe it comes down to: "I expect this wording means {thing}. But if it really meant {thing} I'd expect it to use this other wording instead."

The Aether Revolt Release Notes notestate the following under the heading New Ability Word: Revolt the following:

  • Revolt abilities check only whether a permanent you controlled left the battlefield this turn or not. They don’t apply multiple times if more than one permanent you controlled left the battlefield. They don’t check whether the permanent that left the battlefield is still in the zone it moved to.
