There is no easy answer - it depends upon the type of modem.
Most modern modems are software modems that require and operating system-specific driver to operate, and most of these will support only 1 of the same kind of modem.
You can have multiple modems that use different chipsets without a problem -
And, for modems that have a hardware-controller (do not require operating system-specific driver), the limit would be very high (like over 200) with operating systems like Windows 2000 & XP which support many many COM ports.

You can also get multi-modem cards that have two, four or more modems on the same card - but they aren't common and can be expensive. Another option is a multi-serial port card that supports modems. Eight port serial cards aren't too uncommon and aren't that expensive now that the logic can be integrated into a single chip for 4 or 8 ports. Then you can plug in as many external serial modems as you have serial ports. External serial modems are not as expensive as they used to be either. I have no problem finding them for under $20. each here in the US of A.
