Handling rate limiting

does n8n currently handle api’s that have rate limits? ie salesforce

There is currently no generic solution for that. It would have to built in the integration itself which calls a rate-limited API. The only thing that exists right now which would help with that a little bit is the “Retry On Fail” functionality in the “Node”-Tab of the node. That one allows to make up to 5 retries with max. 5 seconds between them in case the node fails.
