I have 15.6" screen (which is the most popular screen size for laptops) and when I open opentype features window for some fonts which have big list of features, the window becomes bigger than my screen and it's impossible for me to click on ok or cancel buttons, see attached image for more infos.
I think the opentype features should be placed inside scrollbar pane with fixed height based on screen height or inside listbox with inner checkbox.
Also it's impossible to decrease window height, while I can increase height and increase or decrease width.
for what font name do you have so many features?

You can try with Gentium plus or EB Garamond 12, I attached both fonts for testing.

I think, you can decrease width and height until text would disappear. So it works as expected.
I use Ubuntu Mate 19.10 - 64bits and both with LO126.96.36.199 and LODev188.8.131.52 I can only increase the width but the height it's impossible to decrease it, what I see is that the window has minimum width and minimum height, and when the minimum height exceeds the height of the screen it's impossible to continue to work with opentype features window and click on ok/cancel buttons.
See my attached video for more infos.

Opentype window problem
Yep, it is apparent that this problem can occur. Thanks for the screencast.
Let's ask UX team how the dialog should be redesigned to adapt to such scenarios.
Two solutions come in mind: a) put checkboxes in three columns and b) place a scrollwindow behin the checkboxes and define a maximum dialog height.
Similar issue for the print dialog in bug 127782 (solved per scrollwindow).
We discussed this topic in the design meeting and favor a scrollwindow behind the two columns.
Code pointer: cui/uiconfig/ui/fontfeaturesdialog.ui
diwanshu885 committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#128176 Add a vertical scrollwindow to fontfeaturesdialog
It will be available in 7.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.

On KDE, the scrollbar works by using mouse wheeler but the scrollbar is not visible at all. See attached image for more info.

You tested with the wrong version. Please use 7.2: https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/
