Camera saying busy and won't take pictures

Hello everyone. I need your help. I am an amateur photographer from Bangladesh. I am using a cannon 70D with EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.

I need to know how many pictures I can take in a day.

How many shutter count is too much in a day.

I faced a problem. While I was capturing photos with the built in flash fried for a longer period of time. While I was capturing and wanted to take another one the camera was busy. I didn’t able to capture photos. Is it a problem? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Has the problem gone away now?

If you fire too many shots rapidly you fill the camera's buffer and it will show Busy and camera won't take any more photos until buffer clears.

You will tire before the camera does in a day.

Dear Mr. Hoffman: The problem is already fixed. Even I could shoot even after some moments since having that problem. But sir will you tell me was that a problem? Will it harm my camera? Please let me know as early as possible. Thanks in advance sir. Sincerely Al Amin

Not a problem. Normal behavior.
