You can put 150 if you want. No, seriously, the NEC does not place any limit on the number of receptacles installed on a single circuit. Local codes might have restrictions however.

Good practice is typically no more than 8 receptacles on a 15 amp circuit, or 10 receptacles on a 20 amp.

It all depends on what is going to be plugged in to the receptacles.

Fixed lighting is a little easier to figure because you can add up the maximum wattages of the fixtures.
