When exchanging links with websites, what is the ideal number of links to have on your links page? I heard that you could get in trouble if you have too many.

Googles webmaster guidelines say :
"Keep the links on a given page to a reasonable number (fewer than 100). "

[google.com...]

if you are trying to make your site look attractive for a link exchange i think the fewer the better, 20-30 feels good to me, remember that you can spread the links out over several pages.

I heard that you could get in trouble if you have too many.

E_M is correct there is no penalty that i know of for too many links.

We try to keep external links to below 10 per page.

The simple thing to do is to break the links into natural groups and put that group on a page.

Not only will google prefer it, but so will the sites you are exchanging with.

Exactly, nobody will find your site if it is buried among hundereds of sites on one single page.
