How are you connecting to GMail? POP3 or IMAP?
While I have two GMail accounts, using POP3 with one and IMAP with the other, 
I always never use the latter.
The POP3 access seems to handle connectivity problems fine as far as I can tell 
(I have random connection drops when using "mobile broadband" on trains).

The only IMAP account I am using regularily and also in connection drop 
situation is a Kolab account (I also get calendar and tasks through it), so it 
is a Disconnected IMAP:
