I am on sql server 2008 R2 enterprises.

Is there any system built-in tables/views that I can query against to retrieve user connection count over time?

I can use sp_who2 to sum the SPID at any given time. But if I want to know, say last 3 days from 7 AM to 6 PM total connection count on the hour, all I can think of is to build my own table and write into it using agent/job.

Am I going after this the hard way?

You could use auditing.
