There is no limit but it's recommended to don't go over 100 cells to make sure you still have a great notebook performances especially while loading the cells/results

It should be about 100 cells. I don't think community edition or the premium edition are different in this regard. That said, you shouldn't have more than 100 cells in a notebook as you can always separate out your logic into other notebooks.

no limit as a premium user, but it never looks good if you have very long notebook,instead of this you can create multiple notebook and run them via %run command

No limits, but i faced some slowness when i had 100+ cells, so in that case better split the notebook and run it inside the other notebook using %run /02_notebook/

I think no limit on the number of cells. However, it is best practice to separate the code into different notebooks based on functionality. This way code would be more readable.
