Is there a limit on money transfer between my own accounts ?

Yes you need to follow FEMA. There is some paperwork that needs to be done. As per FEMA [Foreign Exchange Management Act], any transfer by individuals outside of India need the 15CA & 15CB form. The 15CB is from a CA to state that taxes have been paid on the funds being transferred. The limit is 1 million USD per year. Read more at Liberalized Remittance Scheme and here.

Since the money is already taxed in India , will I have to pay taxes again in US ?

There are no taxes. There maybe some reporting requirements on the tax returns in US.

Will I be faced with any queries from IRS ?

No if the returns are filed appropriately.
