You won't build a large amount of muscle whilst you are in weightloss mode as you will generally be eating less calories than you burn and to build muscle you need to be eating more calories than you burn but you can maintain and strengthen the muscle you have with the added bonus that when the weight starts to come off you muscle will become more visible.
Personally I think if you are serious about using exercise for weightloss (in conjunction with a controlled eating program) you should be doing cardio at least 5 days a week and weights at least 2 times a week, 3 would be better. But hey that's what worked for me and we are all different.
We do have some PT's on here who can give some good advice too.
