Is there a customization that I am not seeing that paginates the number of articles associated with a collection? We are in the process of setting up topic pages but the number of articles is making the page very long and it would look better if it paginated after about 20 articles.

I'm wondering if perhaps you might consider a search results page? You could batch add a unique keyword (#prep92913 or whatever) to all of the items in the "collection" and then search for that keyword. If you use the "k" parameter for keyword, it will return only items with that specific keyword. The "q" parameter will return items where the word was mentioned somewhere, so items without that keyword may be included. This will paginate automatically and will support unlimited assets.
Also, the search results page supports different layouts for images. You can target specific asset types with a "t" parameter in the search.
This is also a cool way to create "never-ending" photo galleries!
You can also take the search results URL and use it to create a link asset. That link asset can then be given a preview, added to blocks, associated with stories, etc.
