<<Does she become a Smith-Jones-Fulana?>>
So far, I have never seen a Brazilian multi-hyphenated name, christened or not. That, however, will not prevent a Brazilian newly wed woman appending her husband's surname to her maiden name using a hyphen. She will do it if she so desires.
If Maria Osório de Freitas marries Márcio Osório Careca de Longas Tranças, she then may register herself as "Maria Osório de Freitas-Careca-de-Longas-Tranças." She may even drop all the other surnames and retain her maiden name. But she had better watch the county records office clerk's quick hands as s/he records the entry. S/he may unwisely drop one, some of or all hyphens, miswrite the surnames, or drop entire name sections. Sorry for all the yadda yadda.
So yes, she can.
