How far can I drill into brick or concrete surfaces?

You should always only drill as deep as the lengths of the flutes of the drill bit. If holes are drilled beyond the length of the flutes of the drill bit, the bit will lose its ability to clear debris causing it to seize in the hole. This may result in damage to the drill bit or drilling machine.
