You have burping that is not accompanied by chest or abdominal pain. This makes it very unlikely that your burps are caused by a medical problem, so we can proceed to providing treatment advice. Our first recommendations will improve the seal of your lower esophagus.
When burping is frequent, one source of your problem may be excessive relaxing of your lower esophageal sphincter.

It is normal for the sphincter to relax periodically to facilitate normal burping. If the sphincter can't tighten normally, burping may be more frequent.
