I have a large gap between my drywall and stairs - my question is, how much of a gap is acceptable for carpet to be applied on the stairs? I have about a 1-1x1/8 inch gap between the stair edge and the wall.

You're meant to install a skirtboard along the wall, cut to fit the stairs.

Here's a picture from Building Stairs by Andy Engel (I feel like he should hire me to market his book with how often I recommend it to people) showing installing a skirtboard onto the wall.
