Endless SQL Loop for test

I have a server I want to test the SQL connection to see if it drops connection to the SQL.

I was thinking of running an endless loop in the query from a remote machine. Would that work if so I need some help with the Query. If not please help me with a way to test it.

Thank you

I just spotted a missing comment mark, so for completeness

while 1 = 1 begin -- infinite loop
  waitfor delay '0:00:30' -- delay for 30seconds
