There is no set number that should be exceeded. The more segments, the more I/Os required to drive them. Part of the design question is what type of interface? Spi? I2C, 4:1 multiplex, static drive?

Static drive will give a really good contrast, but cannot support to many pins due to the number of leads coming off the LCD.
4:1 has less contrast, but can handle more segments.
If you are going over say 80 segments, it is best to go with Spi.
