How long can you push out the start date for a new job?

I am currently working a job and am looking to work for a different company, I have an interview coming up soon with them.

I would like to take off as much time as possible between jobs (time off without costing PTO!) but I’m wondering how much time is acceptable. I will need at least 2 weeks still with my current job for the notice – could I shoot for 3 or even 4 weeks total for a week or two off? Or will my new employer not like that much of a gap?
