The amount of words you will be able to use on a character limit all depends on how many characters are in your words.... about 333 three-letter words, 250 four-letter words, 200 five-letter words etc...

You are correct:

Keywords - 1,000 characters
Descriptions - 200 characters
and for Titles it is recommended to hold at 64 characters though not followed as much as the Keyword and Description tag suggestions are...

Hope this helps
