Well, you always will have a size/recordingtime limit when using WAV files, you may want to read the article Qu-Drive. Understanding Qu-Drive and USB.
QuDrive uses FAT32 which has a file size limit of 4GBytes per file, WAV format itself limits an audio stream to 4GBytes due to format restrictions.
When recording stereo 48kHz/24Bit this is about 4 hours, mono tracks allow 8h recording.
That’s probably a similar restriction you’ve observed when using recording within GarageBand, other DAWs may automatically split recordings if required.
