There is an unlimited number of pivots you can make. If you are pivoting with your left foot you may not change your pivot foot to your right and if you pivot with your right foot you can't change to your left. If you don't change feet and don't take steps you can do infininte pivots until the game clock runs out or the shot clock expires. If you dribble pivot and then dribble again that is a travel.
