No, there's no limit (to be precise: depends on your server. If your
server is on linux, make sure that it's compiled with a recent apr
version which supports filesizes > 2GB, on Windows that's not a problem
if you're using NTFS).

But if you're using SSPI authentication (auth against windows domain),
you may need to set the MaxKeepAliveRequests to 0 in your apache config
file.
