What database are you using? MS SQL will be much better while handling a greater amount of group. There are no written limitations - recommendation is to limit these as much as possible - the more group the more processing on both SEPM and DB side, but have a look at the Scalability and Sizing Recommendations for SEP - this document should help you further more.

I am agree with Sebastian's comments, if you want more Groups you should use SQL data base.

SQL handles more clients , however you need to keep the groups as low as you can. As suggested above,there will be extra load on SEPM to list the groups.

It depends on the hardware specs of your DB host. You can add that amount of groups but there could be a performance hit if you have inadequate hardware.
