Exchange 2010 focused on 10-GB mailboxes with up to 100,000 items in a folder; Exchange 2013 considers a world in which a 100-GB mailbox and 1,000,000 items in a folder might be common

please advice that is above statement is correct or not?

Is CAS is still connecting connecting outlook internal users in exchange 2013 or they are connecting to mailbox servers now.

I am not 100% clear on your query.

If you are talking about the outlook getting disconnected or showing "connecting..." Please make sure your common name and autodiscover is pointed to Exchange2013

Considering there is now no (theoretical) limit to the maximum number of messages per folder with Exchange 2013 then I would say this is true. See the Mailbox folder limits across Office 365 options section in this article for proof: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124345(v=exchg.150).aspx
Is CAS is still connecting connecting outlook internal users in exchange 2013 or they are connecting to mailbox servers now
Yes Outlook still connects to the CAS but there have been some major changes with the CAS role in Exchange 2013, in that it now proxies the client request to the mailbox server where the data rendering occurs. There is no longer anything stored or queued on the CAS itself so it's basically a stateless server in that aspect.

See these links for more information:

Yes. 100GB mailboxes with 1 million items is entirely possible.

I highly recommend Ross Smith IV's keynote from MEC 2014 on Architecture. He explains the differences between 2010 to 2013. He also explains how improved I/O of the ESE engine has improved DB performance. So much so that Exchange 2013 uses 93% less I/O than Exchange 2003. Because of this Ross explains that they can focus on capacity versus IOPS.

Thats a factual statement, and as Gareth pointed out this is due to the ESE modifications that were made (e.g: better indexing / searching, better ESE compression, on disk caching, ect). The real question here is *can the environment you create* support this..?

I would recommend to confirm with the client that yes, this is possible but you really should size out the environment based off the existing (meaning running statistic tools such as Get-MailboxReport: http://exchangeserverpro.com/get-mailboxreport-ps1-v1-02-released/ and MessageStats.ps1: http://blogs.technet.com/b/neiljohn/archive/2011/08/09/user-profile-analysis-for-exchange-server-2010.aspx from the previous exchange environment, and then throwing them into the Exchange 2013 role calculator) because although something *can* be supported, it is all up to the sizing and architecture to see if it *is* supported.

Totally Agree with Gareth and Adam.
Consider getting a a robust backup solution. More items in the mailbox the more chance for mailbox corruption and items missing.
