I want to set a "limit" in terms of email sends, e.g. every contact that already received 3 mails within the last 3 days shall be excluded from a next mail. I tried with query but since it's not working I think I have a mistake in there - can anyone elaborate on how such a query should look like?

    Can you share a copy of your failed query?

You can use the _Sent data view and run a query in a daily automation within Automation Studio. The data column EventDate will give you the date that the email was sent (you can query the last 3 days) and you can exclude a rolling subscribers in a data extension to use as a suppression.
