The differnence is that a triangular prism has 5 faces and and rectangular prism had 4 faces.

There is none. The number of sides on the bases can always be increased reuslting in an increase in the number of lateral faces. The number of vertices and edges will also increase so there can be no greatest number.

Octagonal prism - Number of vertices-16 Number of rectangular faces-8 Total number of faces-10

A prism has two polygonal faces at each end and these may have any number of sides, n. The prism also has n rectangular faces.

A prism with an n-sided base will have 2n vertices, n + 2 faces, and 3n edges.

A prism *always* has 2 bases. In case you meant "faces" instead of "bases", the prism with the smallest number of faces is the triangular prism - which has 5 faces. If there were any fewer number of faces, the prism which become a two dimensional object.
