If I understand you, correctly, you are concerned about linking across a
page that does not contain any text frame to a later page where the text
link should continue.  If I am correct regarding your concern, you should
know that Scribus handles this quite nicely.  I often skip 20 - 30 pages
where other text frames and image frames exist in between when laying out my
magazine.  Just link the desired frames in the order you want regardless
what page they are on.  I've even linked backward, though the layout wasn't
well thought out, but Scribus handled it impeccably.
