When you select the Text Frame tool, you should find additional options in the Context menu, one of which is the number of columns.

The easiest way I've found (which is a nice surprise because it saves clicks vs. InDesign) is once you drag a text frame onto the document, the "Options Bar" (I forget what Affinity calls it) displays a "Columns" control. Piece of cake. Place cursor in one of the gutters to scale one column width relative to the neighboring one. Unfortunately don't see a gutter width control in the Options Bar but I'm sure there is one somewhere. Right-clicking inside the gutter didn't reveal any context menu.

As Fixx already mentioned, you will find more options through View -> Studio -> Text frame, including controls for the gutter. One of the tutorial videos also explains this quite nicely.
