To add a historical comment, eventhough Org claims to be backend
neutral, it treats LaTeX preferencially in practice.  e.g. many common
LaTeX commands/macros are "understood" by Org.

Just follow what Russel said, put them both where you need a pagebreak.
Try this:

#+MACRO: pagebreak @@latex:\newpage@@ @@html:<div style="page-break-before: 


Hope this helps,
