When would we ever see l>3?

We should not see this as the largest orbital possible is f and that has an angular momentum quantum number of 3.

Yeah, the only orbitals are s, p, d, and f. We can also see this visibly in the periodic table.

We likely won't see past l=3

The only possible l values are 0, 1, 2, 3 (s, p, d, f respectively)
