That question cannot be answered, because the term "character" can be
interpreted in many different ways. (As can "code" - I assume you mean code
point and not code unit.)
There are long discussions of this in the Unicode Standard, chapters 1 and
2, in UAX 29, and in the FAQs, which I suggest you read.
In particular, by one interpretation, character = code point, and the answer
By other interpretations, it is not limited, but in practice you wouldn't
find sequences of code points of more than say half a dozen being usefully
considered 'characters'. But see UAX 29 for more information.
