there is no relation between LV and PV, the whole idea is to group more
Physical Volumes (i.e. real disks) into a Volume Group, then split the
Volume Group into smaller Logical Volumes.
Btw, these are referred as 'Volumes' not 'partitions'.
as an answer for your second question, the manual page for vgcreate
states that with lvm2 metadata format (the default), has no limit for
the number of LV or PV.
