Does linux kill heavy and long running background processes after they reach some threshold?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – If I start a really heavy (memory/cpu intensive) running really long running process will the OS terminate it after a period of time arbitrarily? I.e. are there any limits beyond which the OS would stop a background process from running? Are these limits configurable? Where are they defined? (HowTos)
