Is there any restriction on retrieving map data via openlayers? For example, if we are using openlayers to display a map on our website, is there a limit on the number of times our site may request map data via openlayers?

OpenLayers is a JavaScript library. You can host it on your site and use it to your heart's content because using it does not impact anyone else.

If you want to serve OpenStreetMap data via OpenLayers, you will need to either supply your own map tiles built from OpenStreetMap, or use those provided by OpenStreetMap subject to the Tile Usage Policy, or you could pay someone to provide tiles to/for you.
