Pooled connections usually don't get cleaned up until they're discovered
to be dead. That happens when you try to use them and they break.
Just be prepared for this to happen. If you get a bad connection, grab a
new one and re-try your work.
Yes, you can "test" the connection first ... but something might go
wrong with it between testing it and starting to use it. You need to be
prepared to handle failure at any point and re-try your work. Make sure
to keep your work separated into clear units of work (wrapped as
transactions) so you have a clear idea of what you're up to.

It can't, just as it can't survive connection loss for other reasons.
Your code must be prepared to deal with that.
