To limit how many characters can be input, to go the field settings and set "maximum length" in the Input tab to a value greater than 0. You can also do this per template if you switch to a template using the dropdown in the upper right corner. Or you can go to the template settings and click the field there.

To shorten the string during output, you can use WireTextTools: WireTextTools::truncate() method - ProcessWire API
