Reconnect problems: disconnect detection time + recon procedure

Problem 1) When the internet disconnects, it takes about 5 minutes before LoL realizes that it is disconnected. This becomes a problem because if I try to connect back before then, the game WILL glitch and does not refresh properly (I got permadeath once because the data on client and server side did not synch up, and my client never got the "you are revived, go forth and kill" signal from the server).
The only way to avoid this is to quit from the game screen back onto the lobby, then reconnect.

Problem 2. The lobby will promptly boot me from the game when I click "Reconnect to game".

Why does it have to do this? Why can't it just reconnect me into the game, like the button actually says?
