How many times can the neck be reset by flossing the cheeks before the angle becomes too much and creates a hump at the body joint??

Often times when doing a neck re set you will need to shim the fret board extension so it follows the proper plane. As long as that its done there should be no issues with a hump or dip and the procedure can be done many times if needed.

What Howard said, it isn't that you will get a hump as much as the extension will stay flat on the top and the neck will be hinged back. If this is a customers instrument I will be sure to communicate to them. If the fall off is noticeable I like to wedge it so the extension is true to the neck.
