Here is my scenario

I run a VPN client to initiate connection to my corporate network. The VPN will disconnect every 24 hrs. I can reconnect immediately. I initiate ssh sessions to some servers after establishing VPN connection.

The problem I have is I lose the ssh session every 24 hrs. I do have screens running to regain my sessions.

Is there an ssh client or ssh option that will tolerate 30 seconds or 1 min of break in the link with the server?

Use autossh. Links to home page, man page. If you are using Linux then it's probably packaged in your distribution.
