To answer the question in the subject line, there is no way in XSLT to
break out of a loop. You can, however, use a recursive named template that
passes itself a parameter that is whatever thing you want to monitor the
state of.

However, I don't see what your problem is, if you know the current page and
the total number of pages... why do you need to know anything else in order
to generate that footer?
