1. How many Google Sheets connections can I create?"
Because of a technical limitation it's only possible to connect up to 50 active Google account connections in Databox per Google account user. This applies for all Google Accounts combined (Ads, Analytics, Sheets). If you create a 51st connection, the first one connected will go into error.
