Length for data with new line in a text field

We have implemented a new column of length 2000 character and the following behavior has been observed.
If a text containing a new line/line break is entered in this column, then the column accepts less number of characters than its column length.
example: if the column length is 2000, and we enter data that has 2000 character, it is working fine.
But if we enter data with 2000 characters but with one new line, than it accepts 1998 characters.

Please note that this behavior is also replicable for Service Request>Comments field which is S_SRV_REQ.DESC_TEXT.

We have the following queries in this regard:
1. Is this standard vanilla behavior?
2. What amount of space does a new line require?
