The XMPP Connector will attempt to respond to pings from the server to prevent from being dropped. If it does not respond to ping many XMPP servers will drop the client within 10 minutes. However, the connector seems to occasionally drop from the server overnight for no discernable reason. The bot and web UI remain running, but does not recieve messages from the server. If anyone figures out why, open an issue describing the reason or submit a pull request with the solution. Restarting the bot will fix the issue.
