The trust document contains the rules for the trust.
If there are not any restrictions, the trustee can serve as long as they want to serve.
There is no time limit for serving, unless the Trust document provides such a limitation. This is often done when there are young beneficiaries and the Trust creator wants the Trustee to act only until a specific age is reached by the beneficiaries, after which the Trust may be distributed and the Trustee's job ends. The rules should be set out in detail in the Trust document. Most Trusts will allow a Trustee to resign and then be replaced by the next named successor Trustee and if one is not named, often the resigning Trustee can appoint its successor.
NO. There is no such limit as to the number of trusts for which one can be a trustee, whether his or her own trusts or those of others.
