The chart and information that I posted above came from the instruction manual for a different, more expensive camera than the T5i.  However, because nearly all Canon DSLRs share a common storage format on memory cards, and all use the same video file format, the limitations defined by the chart should apply to your T5i, nearly all other Canon DSLRs, except for the most expensive models.

 

Your camera just may not automatically start a new video file.  Check your instruction manual. By not automatically beginning a new video file, your camera may be protecting itself from damage.  Recording video causes image sensors to heat up quickly and significantly.  The sensor can even heat up to the point where the camera will shut itself down.  This overheating danger should also be described in the instruction manual.

One reason because of the varying recording time could be your video content.  Just as photo files are not all the same size because of image compression, video files are likewise not all the same size because of video compression.

 

When you buy a new card, I would advise to buy at least one 32GB card, which SDHC.  A 64GB card is SDXC, and many people have experienced issues with some brands of cards, even name brands.  

 

Never use a microSD card, because they are nothing but trouble.  The adapters are highly unreliable.  Finally, be sure to perform a low level format on any memory card that you put in your camera prior to using it.
