I checked in the Viva Designer. There is 100.
In my opinion 10 column would be enough... ...this is copious.

An example: http://mmi.elte.hu/szabadbolcseszet/mmi.elte.hu/szabadbolcseszet/mediatar/tipografia_iras_szamitogeppel/image117.jpg
Number of columns: 8

would you really do that layout with one text frame split in 8 colums?

i would use 8 columns defined as guides, filled with text frames...

"i would use 8 columns defined as guides, filled with text frames... "

This is not always practical.

well, 3000 columns are a lot. but – is there a problem with a too high maximum value?

In theory there is no...
...practically it makes no sense.

Other problem
If there are too many columns, Scribus sometimes is crash. I can very rarely reproduce, therefore so far I not announced.
