I am frequently switching between wireless and wired networks. Each time, all my ssh-connexions need to be closed and reissued. Is there some way to keep such connections open?

The only possibility I am aware of is to use screen. That is, to start a new connection and say

exec screen -r -d

I am not sure of a way to do it natively, and I don't think screen would help as the server it is on is switching interfaces here is a blog post describing a work flow with intermittent ssh and screen. There is also mosh which allows roaming shells.
