In brief: Yes

There can be many reasons to have multiple biopsies.
The most common would be to assess for change in chronic liver disease.

In brief: Many liver biopsies

It depends on the context (diagnoiss, treatment, management).
It depends on the definition of many. One measurement (of just about anything) does not give you a trend...And, at times, that is necessary post-transplant there may be a need for many biopsies...
