The reason why old Roman statues don't have arms is because after the fall of Roman empire multiple people came in and stole the statues. Their limbs were cut off to make it easier to carry.

As well as the arms not having any sort of support, so they would eventually just give way and fall off due to its weight.

Yeah, but the cutting off parts wouldn't be so flat if they simply fell off.

They were probably filed (or sanded?) down

No one can really say why Venus doesn't have any arms.
Most of the time when the statues were being made, and depending what material, their arms would often snap off or be very fragile.
Same could be said for Venus, who might have been damaged in a battle. She was found in several pieces to start with, but her arms were not to be found.

TL;DR Pic related because reasons.

Didn't Hercules break off her arm?

Of course! But some people prefer to believe this whole 'History' nonsense.   
Everyone knows it was Hercules, if they look inside themselves.
