I think that there are benefits and costs in a similar way to the Teams Vs Channels argument. If you do it in channels it will be easier to manage since you won't have to create a new team every time so you have a lower amount of Teams sprawl, however the cost will be that you can't, say, archive channels - it's still on the backlog per uservoice.
I would be tempted to trial run 2 teams and 1 Team with a few channels to see which is the better working experience. I would probably lean towards Teams so I can archive the Team but I know that this isn't necessary for all organisations.
In terms of the limit per Teams/Channel - there is nothing out there which shows what the actual limit is: I guess I was making the point that since the limit of plans is 500k the limits (if they were anything smaller than this number) would be defined by the Team/Channel. The limit of the number of Teams and Office 365 Groups is 500k so if you took it that there is one Team, one 365 Group and one plan then that is 500k. There is nothing to state that this limit does not apply to multiple plans in channels, however there is a limit of 200 channels within a Team
In terms of whether you create a plan it creates an Office 365 group see this article - if you create a new plan via Planner it creates a new Office 365 group
In Teams when you add a new plan it will create it in the Office 365 group linked to the Team, so several plans within one Team/Office 365 group.
Hope that makes sense!

@Badal RatraI can't comment on the 500K Plan limit quoted in that link, but I do know that you can create multiple plans within a single team now (you couldn't do this before, so each plan used to require a new group). Your plan should work as long as you make a plan for how to scale it up as new projects are added and old ones are finished.
At this time, there's no option to "archive" a Plan, you can only delete them when you're done. If that's not acceptable, have a plan for how to manage completed projects.
Also, please vote for this "feature" on UserVoice. Why was not added within the first year of Planner is beyond me, but here we are.
