The system is actually pretty easy going, you have to leave or AFK on a pretty consistent basis to get banned.
As for a system to detect a disconnect? It is impossible for a network to tell if a disconnect happen because someone unplugged the cable, or your dog, or if the connection was lost due to a legitimate failure.
