There is no requirement in the CA/Browser Forum at present to require
regular key rotation, nor is there a way for that to be verifiably
implemented across all CAs, as any subscriber can present a preexisting
keypair to another CA.
So no. The limit is to the lifetime of the certificate and the reuse of
Changing keys frequently is not a function of the key strength, but a
function of pragmatic key protections. Shorter-lifetime keys, such as 90
days, coupled with automated issuance, appropriately balance the realities
of clock skew in clients versus the practical challenges of meaningful key
protection on Internet-enabled systems.
