I have heard that klean klay is a good clay to sculpt with, I have heard that it doesn't dry (or at least dry very quickly). As for the bio, I am unsure. There are a few threads that can answer these questions. People have made various threads about how they've made their masks, bio etc in different styles and techniques from as simple as cardboard or foam to resin or latex. Use the search bar and see what you can find.

Any Oil based clay would let you work for days and months. Keep it away from the sun and cover it with clean plastic wrap if u gonna take long breaks.
Oil based clay like chavant comes in several hardness. The best one is the one u feel you can move the clay with your fingers with ease and be able to work instantly
without heating it to soften it etc. Clay with more wax content in it will be harder and be able to sculpt the tiniest details. Those are also more expensive.

So its all about application.

Here's a thread discussing different clays, prices, etc. I've been using Van Aiken clay from hobby lobby but it's a bit soft. Good for larger projects that don't need massive amounts of detail.
