I have DL380 G6's with 10 NIC's.
The 2 inboard ones and then 2 4 port NIC cards, if I remember you should be able to add at least another 4 to that as well to give you 14

Only limit I know of is on 10Gb cards:

10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapters
NOTE: No more than two 10GbE I/O devices are supported in a single ProLiant server.
NOTE: A minimum of two Gigabytes (2 GB) of server memory is required per each adapter.

This should answer the G5 iSCSI question - or do you mean how can you tell if the license is there on your particular server or not?

Two embedded NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Network Adapters with TCP/IP Offload Engine, including support for Accelerated iSCSI through an optional Licensing Kit.

License is under the OS as far as I know, see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1121516&prodNameId=3288134&swEnvOID=4049&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-a91b25105d7f4562878cd72758 for example.
