1 thing to know which isn’t available online is that, when you return from the break and click to proceed to the section, a screen with instructions for that section will appear. This screen I believe lasts for 120 secs. You can use this time for plugging in your ear plugs or jotting something on your scratch pad!

Don't forget palm scan will be done during the breaks. Both the time when you come out and get back in. It takes around 30 - 40 seconds.
Also, you can't utilize your break inside the testing area.
