Default Yes you can but it's not recommended

You can stay on your seat for as long as you wish.

When you take a break the computer screen will show you a clock counting for you the time you are logged off and the remaining test and break time.

So Yes you can stay in your seat.

But that's not recommended. It's better to go out to change the environment and stretch out and wash your face.
