day trading futures questions

I'm new to futures, and i am a day trader, i was doing stocks for a bit. So my question is does futures day trade like stocks or differently? Like can i buy as many of 1 contract as i want or is there a limit like shares with stocks? As well can I trade that same contract multiple times in a day without issue? Is there a limit i need in my account to day trade like the 25k for stocks? I just don't want to go in and get hit with a surprise like you can only trade that contract once, or after 3 day trades you're a pattern day trader etc..

Any things I should know going into futures to day trade?

Thanks all!
