New Premium Archive Sub Here With Question About Feed Limits and Archive

I am trying to really understand how these and other features work

So I have managed to set up (as long as we are still able) an rss feed for one of my Twitter lists and for the moment it works
My issue on the web and iOS mobile is that the unread feed count for this Twitter list only shows for 500 stories and the statistics panel tells me there are over 3600 stories in archive (I have not yet gone through this feed yet so everything is unread). Have I lost the ability to open and read anything over 500 unless I search for a particular story title in that feed? Will there only ever be up to 500 stories shown in a feed?

That’s just to start. If you go past those 500 stories, using search for instance, you can mark any of those stories as unread.
