While Google has said they don't have a 100 link limit anymore, they never really said if there was a limit or not.
Google's John Mueller said in a Google Webmaster Help thread that there is no limit. He wrote:
There's no limit to the number of links on your pages, so that wouldn't be affecting how your site shows up in search results.
Of course, links on your page can hurt you if you are doing something spammy. Matt described this in his video last year as well.
But now we know there is no real limit in the number of links per page.
