    Indefinitely. This can happen spontaneously in meditation.

    Me personally? About a minute. There are some people who've trained themselves to be able to do it for much longer.

    Not for long. A minute or two at most. The world record is eight minutes, I think.
    Holding your breath improperly might rupture the tiny vessels in your throat and face. Don't inhale as much as you can and try to keep it all. Keep half of it.
