Question: Maximum length of file names

I inadvertently discovered that the save command (and probably read, write, export and import commands too?) returns an error (something like "can't write ...") when the file length is too large (265 in my case).

Is this documented somewhere?
Is there a way to exceed this limit?
Assuming D=".../" and F="xxx.m", can we set the path of the directory D to some value and then use save something, F instead of save something cat(D, F) ?

Thanks in advance
