A week ago, I got my Depo-Privera shot. Is it safe for my boyfriend to ejaculate inside me multiple times in one day with this shot? Will I get pregnant? Will the shot protect me from getting pregnant if I have sex multiple times in one day?

The shot protects you against pregnancy no matter how many times you have sex.

Each shot of Depo-Provera will protect you from pregnancy for 12 weeks. So you will need to go to your health care provider every 12 weeks for a shot. If you are two or more weeks late getting your shot, your health care provider may ask you to take a pregnancy test, or may advise you to use emergency contraception if you had vaginal intercourse in the previous 120 hours (five days).
