There really isn't any set limits. With a GET, you are confined to the number of characters that are allowed in a URL, being that the data is carried in the query string. But that allowed length varies with browser and platform.

For a POST, you can send just about any amount of data in the request body that you like, but with extremely large data blocks you end up pushing practical limits such as memory and bandwidth.

Theoretically, yes. But as I pointed, out you can run into practical limits.
