number of maximum connections when Apache is used as a proxy

P: 54

I`m using apache as a proxy to solve cross domain security restriction of javascript. The client sends AJAX requests to a JAVA based jabber server and the Apache serves as a proxy so the javascript and the jabber server will think they are in the same domain.

The jabber server works as follows (http-binding):
It gets an 'update' AJAX request from the client but keep the connection open until it has a new message for the client. Then the client sends a new 'update' request.

I know that Apache has a limit on the number of connection it can handle. If it serves as a proxy will the Apache connection be opened only for the time it takes to proxy the request - milliseconds or all the time the connection is open -minutes?
