There is a session timeout of 3600 seconds, a period of inactivity after which you get logged out, we can increase this timeout in backend if desired, there might be users which prefer to keep an open TC tab in browser or alike...

Session length:
Sessions will expire after this time, in seconds. 3600

...and, there is the "Remember me" checkbox in login mask, dunno if it helps with your timeout though.

Doubtful, I usually just pick up a page URL and also flick between various gadgets with different ISP and/or VPN or not. There’s nothing specific that tells me I’m logged in or not without making a suitable query. Maybe multiple possible cookie recognition?

Session is stored in cookie after login, and session is bound to IP address, so multiple ISPs/VPNs will mess up things, yes.
