The timeout is controlled on the server side. This is done to prevent bad code from doing bad things, as you probably already knew. GoDaddy might be able to adjust the timeout for your user account specifically but I do not know their policy on that. It is an option that can be modified.

I do not believe so.
The MySQL manual has this system variable:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_interactive_timeout

Unless you can modify the mysql.conf file on the server itself, this probably is not an option for you.

Having said that, I do know there are hosts out there that allow for the account holder to modify a local file which they will allow certain changes to the mysql.conf file as a privileged user, however, this setting can cause a malformed query to send the mysqld process to 100% utilization, thus stifling all user accounts connecting to the server.

The only way to know what your options are is to contact the ISP support. GoDaddy has pretty good support and they should be able to tell you yea or nay with details.
