If it doesn't do it already, then most likely it's not supported at
present. However, Scribus does support column breaks (at least in
1.3.x), and though I don't think it does page breaks yet the two are
equivalent if you have only one single-column frame in the linked series
per page.

Extending the OpenOffice.org Writer importer to suppport reading in page
breaks probably wouldn't be too hard, nor creating them in Scribus as
part of the import process. I say "probably" because I haven't
investigated either, it's an impression only.
