Can I cut nicotine patches to reduce the amount of nicotine that I am receiving?

No. Most makes of nicotine patches are designed in a way that makes them unsuitable to cut or alter. Cutting a patch may cause the nicotine in the patch to seep out and you run the risk of getting an uncontrolled dosage of nicotine.
