That depends on how you do it.
If you use the mass virtual hosting setup, it's pretty high (nearly
infinity) though OS restrictions as to how many symbolic or actual
links/subdirectories you can have in a directory could define a limit.
If you're using seperate VirtualHost directives, I think each will use at
least 2 open file handles. If you then have actual access logging and
error logging, this will use another 2. In any case, on a bog standard
2.0 kernel, you will have problems with more than around 250 virtual host
directives (though you can get more by using different logging
mechanisms). This can be tweaked though - I've managed to get one
server running well over a thousand virtual hosts by tweaking the kernel
and apache config.
Normal install and config under a 2.2 kernel - I think you'll get about
1000. Under a 2.0 kernel, about 250.
