Test the value of the position() function:

  <xsl:copy-of select="following::p[position() != 3]" />

By the way, you don't have to test whether there are any such ps
before you copy them - if you try to copy something that isn't there,
then you don't get a copy of anything.

Also, are you sure that you want following:: rather than
following-sibling::? If the h1 is on the same level as (i.e. a sibling
of) the p elements, then you could use following-sibling:: instead,
which is likely to be more efficient.
