-Number of consumers limited to number of partitions

We have a topic with three partitions - one on each broker (Kafka 0.7.1).
Using ConsumerConnector I noticed that I can consume messages from three
consumers at most. When I start fourth one, one of the older one stops.
Is this as designed? If I want more parallelism, do I need to increase
number of partitions?
