TXT records haven't changed since RFC 1034 and 1035.

You can have multiple strings per record, and multiple records per
name.  At the application level, some applications glom multiple
strings per record together, some treat them separately.  There are a
few obscure designs that combine multiple TXT records at the same
name, but you're unlikely to run into any of them.
