ON CPT related to your field of study YES you can. On campus jobs without CPT you cannot as far as i know

during Summer you can work any number of hours on CPT. My employer mentioned my work hours per week as "40+", which my DSO approved without any questions. Also, I confirmed it with my academic advisor and she said, you can work any number of hours during summer, as long as you aren't registered for a course.
Safest bet will be to ask you school's International Students services.

Looks true. I do not find any mention of "40" either in UIC website or in http://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-11261/0-0-0-17197/0-0-0-17800.html
