Oh, really? Unless I'm missing something, when replication timeout happens,
the following log message would be logged in the master:

    terminating walsender process due to replication timeout

OTOH, something like the following would be logged in the standby:

    could not receive data from WAL stream......

The standby periodically tries reconnecting to the master after it detects
the termination of replication connection. So even after prolonged disconnect,
replication can automatically resume.
