The 747F has a maxiumum payload of around 110 ton and can travel 8000km. That means a lot of fuel. Can you for example put 150 tons of cargo and fuel for only 3000 km? Would it work? Are there some kind of restrictions?

No you will run up against a ZFW weight problem. In the 744F there is the ability to increase your ZFW and reduce yout MTOW to handle short sectors. I don't have the reference in front of me, but IIRC the payload approached 120 tonnes.

the MZFW on a B747-400F is 276t ( comp 610000lbs ), if you have a DOW of around 160t you may load up to 106t into this aircraft, but depending on route resp fuel burning this can sometimes be not possible.
makes an actual ZFW weight of 610000lbs ( limit )
but if you would need 340000lbs Take Off Fuel and Burn off of 310000LBS you cannot load all of your cargo as MTOW is 910000. so your maximum allowed payload is only 230000lbs
