Rip with a DVD ripper like MakeMKV, then use HB if you need further processing.

Handbrake itself does not limit the output size.

Without the logs, we cannot say much, other than they probably show read errors. A program designed to be used for ripping will tell you about them; handbrake assumes that the video has come to an end, and finalizes the output.
