Is there a limit to the number of custom fields I can create?

Well, not in practice, but certainly a limit could be hit.  We have customers who have created hundreds of custom fields and assigned custom data to 10’s of thousands of patents, when you consider a new set of custom fields could be created for various projects throughout the year.  In this case custom fields run seamlessly in real time as if the data were native to the application.  Of course, if you create a million custom fields, we’ll have to chat :-), but a few hundred is not unreasonable.

Also if you have a lot of fields you want to define, you’ll want to carefully monitor which ones are available to whom in your organization.  If a user is not working on a project, then don’t give them access to the fields to keep the clutter down in their custom fields panel.
