Does anybody have an idea how I could get custom footnote breaks like "if the footnote is longer than x lines, then break it to the next page"?

I don't know any way to do it on footnote base. But you can set the maximum height the footnotes can ocupy on the page:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
abc\footnote{\lipsum[1-3]}

\newpage
\dimen\footins=8\baselineskip\relax
abc\footnote{\lipsum[1-3]}

\newpage abc\newpage
\dimen\footins=20\baselineskip\relax
abc\footnote{\lipsum[1-3]}

\end{document}
