I'm not sure to understand, so let me summarize:
you have an input type='text' where a user can put an unlimited number of keywords: you want to grab these keywords only up to 50 and have them separated by a comme. If this is the case, you can try this:

<?php

if (isset($_POST['submit'])){
  $kw = $_POST['keywords'];
  $kw = preg_replace("/\s+/", " ", $kw);
  $kwArr = explode(' ', $kw);
  $output = array_slice($kwArr, 5, count($kwArr));
  $output = array_diff($kwArr, $output);
  $keywords = implode(', ', $output);
  echo $keywords;
}

echo "<form method='post'>";
echo "<input type='text' name='keywords' value='' />";
echo "<input type='submit' name='submit' value='Submit' />";
echo "</form>";

Thanks for points. To limit the length of accepted keywords you can use this:

if (isset($_POST['submit'])){
  $kw = $_POST['keywords'];
  $kw = preg_replace("/\s+/", " ", $kw);
  $kwArr = explode(' ', $kw);
  $output = array_slice($kwArr, 5, count($kwArr));
  $output = array_diff($kwArr, $output);
  for($i = 0; $i<count($output); $i++){
    if (strlen($output[$i]) <= 20){
      $result[] = $output[$i];
    }
  }
  $keywords = implode(', ', $result);
  echo $keywords;
}
