If TCP keepalives are enabled, the TCP connection will break when the
keepalives stop arriving.

If wal receiver timeout is enabled, it'll notice that it didn't get any
data from the walsender and assume it went away.

If the OS notices that the socket went away - say, it got a TCP RST from
the remote peer as it shut down cleanly - it'll close the walreceiver
socket and the walreceiver will quit.

Otherwise it won't notice and will wait indefinitely.
