jquery ui draggable/droppable/sortable

This is what i have so far

$(function() {

        $('#bin').sortable({
            placeholder: 'deletingPlaceholder',
            update: function (event, ui) {
                ui.item.hide();

            }
        });
	$( "#drop-elements" ).sortable({
	    revert: true,
            tolerance: 'pointer',
            connectWith: '#bin',
            opacity: 0.6
		});
        $( ".drag" ).draggable({
            connectToSortable: "#drop-elements",
            helper: "clone",
			revert: "invalid"
            });
         $( "ul, li" ).disableSelection();
    });


The maximum number in sortable is 5.

How do i disable when the number of <li> is 5?

That the #drag (draggable) cannot be dropped in #drop-elements (sortable)

this was the best solution i could think of

	$(function() {
        $('#bin').sortable({
            placeholder: 'deletingPlaceholder',
            update: function (event, ui) {
                ui.item.hide();
            }
        });
		$( "#drop-elements" ).sortable({
			revert: true,
            tolerance: 'pointer',
            connectWith: '#bin',
            opacity: 0.6,
            update: function(event, ui) {
                showdescription();
                if( $("#drop-elements li").size() > 4 ){
                      $( ".drag" ).draggable( "option", "disabled", true );
                }else{
                      $( ".drag" ).draggable( "option", "disabled", false );
                }
            },


		});

        $( ".drag" ).draggable({
            connectToSortable: "#drop-elements",
            helper: "clone",
			revert: "invalid",
            });
         $( "ul, li" ).disableSelection();
    });

Would like it to be so that when max number is reached, sortable would be freezed and item that is dropped on top of sortable is replaced.

Tryed everthing but can't seem to get it to work

Maximum number of dragable items by <select> input value (id="raam")
 function checkmax(){
        var maxnum = $("#raam option:selected").val();
                if( $("#drop-elements li").size() == maxnum  ){
                      $( ".drag" ).draggable( "option", "disabled", true );
                }else{
                      $( ".drag" ).draggable( "option", "disabled", false );
