If playing as a wizard with the spells, the right level and the money necessary to create homunculi, is there anything within the rules of d&d 5th edition that places a limit on the number of homunculus companions you may have?

From the Monster Manual:

A master can only have one homonculus at a time (attempts to create another one always fail), and when its master dies, the homonculus also dies.

So yes, there is a limit - you can only ever have a single homonculus.

"you can only ever a single homonculus" at a time. If you break it you can get another one. – Jack Mar 15 at 16:40
