I think the absolute number doesn't matter after a point. Enough that you are getting good practice in falling, after that it is good for aerobic conditioning...but 500 doesn't necessarily make you better than 300...

I did a lot more my first month of training than I do now, for instance... I'd go to open practice and roll for an hour (you can get A LOT of falls in an hour that way ) but at that point I really wanted to improve my falling so I could get thrown more freely by seniors. The only time I'd only roll for an hour now is to loose a little weight, or if I was particularly unhappy with how my ukemi was that day... although I am sure plenty of my instructors would say my ukemi always needs more work
