for PQexec calls? Is there some implemented features, which should be used
to handle situation like this?
Have you tried using Cancel functionality:

for retransmission, so OS actually closes socket after some period. This is
detected by pqSocketPoll's poll and libpq handles situation correctly -
error is reported to my application. But it's just a workaround.
There are certain tcp parameters which can be configured for connections.
tcp_keepalives_idle, tcp_keepalives_interval, tcp_keepalives_count
