Is there a limit to how close you place a piece of terrain to another piece of terrain? My cousin reckons there is but there is nothing in the rulebook. What do you think?

There is no limit, but it's best to follow a basic groundrule for it. Most common is to place terrain with enough room between another piece so that it's possible for at least 1 unit to move through the gap. People also usually leave enough room between terrain and the board edge, so that it is possible for flanking units and cavalry to travel there.
And you should never set up your terrain in a way that unbalances the game and gives a significant edge to one of the players, like setting up a 3/4 forests when playing wood elves ( + the wood that WE can place themselves ) , or littering the board with difficult terrain and playing a gunline.
Although playing a game with a river running through the entire middle of the table is fun for lizardmen
Most tournaments and leagues I have played in have rule that terrain can't be within 6 inches of another piece. Some go as high as 12 inches. But you are correct in that the rule book doesn't make this mandatory.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
