But, when there are a great many points, the symbols are very close and the graph becomes unreadable. Would there be an argument  or a tip not to draw all the symbols, for example the symbols could be drawn only every x points, x given as an argument ?

If decreasing the size of the points is not effective, then you it may be more informative to use densityplot.
