Is there any particular reason you do that as two separate steps?
It would feel more natural, at least to me, to do something along
the lines of

        git log --show-notes=p4notes -1000

Thanks for the reply.

I did not make clear above that I want to stop looking when I find the
first commit that has the note.

In the case of 'git log --show-notes=p4notes -1000', Git will process
and hand me the log output for 1,000 commits.  It is rare I need to
walk that deep.
I simply matched it with your initial "rev-list --max-count=1000".
The "log" command pages and you can hit 'q' once you saw enough (in
other words, you do not have to say -1000).

This is run via script without user intervention. Presumably, Git will do 1,000 commits of work when it may only need to do 1 or 5 or 10?
