Default How many connections on home WiFI? + OpenVPN


when i open firewall (Comodo Internet Security) on my Windows 10, it shows around 1000 outbound connections :

illustration image:

i want to ask how many connections roughly stops to be acceptable by local WiFi provider? Meaning they will start thinking if i am not abusing the service/breaking TOS.
Does it make trouble to them if i use parallel connections of:

outbound speed is 30Mbit/s, 2.4G

If this trafic goes from local via OpenVPN tunnel to the remote vpn server. Does it make any diference? I mean if this traffic still have quite same performance impact on my WiFi ISP? Is it still too many requests or the number of I/O traffic operations is somehow reduced when the traffic goes thru VPN or SSH socks?

I ran netstat on my computer I and I see about 100 connections on my machine. You have significantly more, I don't know if that's a problem. Probably not.

If you connect a VPN, all traffic will run through the single ssl connection, so they will see a lot of traffic over the one connection. Most likely they can also see that it is a vpn. Likely not an issue.
