twitter limits

Hello. I heard somewhere that the limit on tweets per day using the Search Twitter operator is 1000. However, I think if one connects through the API using, say Python, the limit is orders of magnitude larger. Can anyone confirm the 1000 number?
I posted this question before and got this reply
The search requests limit is 180 per 15 min at the moment and that comes from the docs here
Rate limits: Standard v1.1 | Twitter Developer
maybe from this line
GET search/tweets180450
although it seems that in the above case it should 450 since it is an app, I think.

But then I tried 800 tweets and it ran fine. Does anyone have the solution to this? 
And what if I try running 2000 or 3000, or more, will it cause me to be banned from Twitter?
