    It's normal for WiFi to turn off in sleep mode. This will disconnect your VPN. Not sure, but I think I saw a Cydia tweak to keep WiFi on even in sleep mode.

    I've noticed it also depends upon a/c power. If plugged in, an active WiFi connection will continue in sleep mode.

    From your post, I couldn't tell how you used VPN and assumed WiFi from your 2nd problem. Better check, but I believe 3G also turns off at sleep to conserve battery. It's also possible the carrier is tearing down long-term connections. My carrier (T-Mobile USA) does not support extended connection times.
