Give a window for when you started noticing the symptoms.
See in /var/log/pacman.log what packages were upgraded then.
Downgrade them and see if the issue persists.

If yes, when is the SSH connection hanged/interrupted (ssh -vvv)?
What do the SSHD logs show on the server side?

So you produce nothing at work?

How about looking at the system logs to see what your system was up to
just before a crash?
