Is this still the recommendation with the advent of HTTP/2, and HTTP/3 on the horizon? My understanding is now it is preferable to have lots of smaller, individual assets.

It might be worth revising or clarifying this section because it's no longer true that you should reduce the number of requests above all else if you are also adopting HTTP/2.

Here's a good article that gets into the "why" behind this not necessarily being a best practice anymore.

I'm definitely from the era of "sprite all the things!" so I'm making this adjustment too!
