Can plumbing vent pipes run horizontal?
OF COURSE BUT they should be of non scaling materials and be pitched slightly away from the fixtures being served so any condensation will flow back towards the fixture drain and allowing for hot air to rise up to the vent terminal

How do you connect a vent pipe to the horizontal branch and main pipes running below the toilet floor of a high rise commercial building?
The toilet should have a 3" drain coming from the toilet and has to leave the room some where. When it passes the wall you can put a 3"x 2"x 3"sanitary tee( which should be go…ing with the flow)and have vent stack running along the interior of the wall this may involve tearing out the drywall. Then just tie the vent on to an existing one. Keep in mind; the vent can be 2", and the vent can be no more than 4' away from the center of the toilet drain.

Yes. How depends on the governing code. You'll need to know how many fixture units you are serving (lavatory=1, sink=2, toilet =3 or 4, shower =2, bidet=1, dishwash=2, clothes… wash = 2), what size pipe you are venting and what size vent pipe you are using. Internationallly there may be no percentage limit on horizontal vs total vent length, but within the U.S., look for a percent limitation. For example, Illinois limits horizontal vent to 20% of the total run (referred to as developed length). You should be able to find the applicable table in the local State plumbing code at your local library.
A pipe that vents fumes
Vent pipes are a vital part of a plumbing system. Most importantlyit cancels out any siphon or vacuum caused by the moving water.
