Separate names with a comma.

I usually try to keep mine down to about 20-25 a lecture on average to make it more manageable. I basically do exactly what you do, just with less cards. I will admit that it is very time consuming and some weeks I fall behind on Anki. With Anki, I basically only make a card if it is both something that is high-yield and requires memorization of facts (such as micro and pharm). So for some lectures I don't make very many cards and for others (such as pharm) I may make as many as 35-40, but the average is around 20.
I used Anki during the first 2 years as well and now sparingly during 3rd year to study for shelf exams. I had about 30-40 cards per lectures. What I found helpful was that the more words I have on the card, the less effective and inefficient it becomes. So I just have a couple of 'buzzwords' or 'cue words' on each card. Of course, they are just supplemental to the real studying but I found it helps with information retention.
