Yes it is ok to put air in especially if the can leaves you at a lower than specified pressure and you have a ways to go before you can get it repaired But remember Fix-a-flat is not a correct fix. It does help in emergencies. you should have the tire repaired,or replaced. With Fix-a-Flat, a tire will be unbalanced and will be shorting the life & safety of the tire.

However, you should inform the tech who replaces or repairs your tire that it was filled w/ sealant as some brands use a propellant that is flammable.

Yes there most certainty is a limit to the amount of air that can be pumped into a bicycle tire. Put too much air in the tire and it will explode. The maximum air pressure for the tire is listed on the sidewall of the tire.

It is the air valve on the tire, where you put air into the tire.
