Seeking Layout Advice

I've been converting ebooks for a number of months now, and sorry to say I have not read any ebooks which are presented like my current project. (I'm sure there are hundreds out there, but I haven't stumbled over them)

I have approximately 450 short pieces I'm placing in 4 volumes, and they range from a single paragraph up to about 7500 words. Usually when I've done short stories, I make a separate xhtml file for each piece. But this would feel pretty awkward for this project. Dozens and dozens of single paragraph "chapters"???

I have never used the "page-break-before" to start new chapters, because on a few reading apps for PC (older version of CoolReader, Calibre viewer, and a couple others I can't recall at the moment), the page break wasn't honored. I decided not to chance it on previous books I've converted.

Can I rely on the CSS-styled page-breaks being displayed?
Or should I physically split the files?
