I had a hardware which recently died. I just wanted to ask if there is a particular limit for these physical wallets to last? if yes, how long do they last?

My hardware wallet is two years and still working fine. The only issue I see with your wallet is either poor manufacturing or brand quality. would recommend trying Trezor or Xapo.

A private key can hold any measure of authentic bitcoins and modern hardware wallets, for example, the ledger nano contain a bundle of private keys so there is no understanding of "limit" truly.

if you are Nano S client, a better question would be: "how much would be safe to store on a hardware wallet such as the Nano S".

Hardware wallets sign exchanges, these exchanges are communicated to hubs, mined by miners and put away on the blockchain
