No, you only need to connect the luxury resource once to enjoy the full 20-turn benefit.
India is the main Tall empire. Their happiness modifier makes you want to avoid settling/conquering, but allows a lot of science to come out of the few cities you have. Persia is what I think of when I want gold. Golden ages lasting longer means more gold from them.
Rome is actually very good for this as one of their UUs, the Legion, can construct roads, allowing you to build and connect far-flung cities without the risk of Workers being captured by Barbarians. Send out a Legion with every Settler and have them build roads back to the capital once the new City is built. If you're not the empire-building type, getting ...

If you open a militaristic city-state's information window and mouse over the "Trait: Militaristic" words, a tooltip will be displayed indicating which unit the city-state will provide, and which technology you must have researched in order for them to provide the unit. Militaristic city-states gift units more frequently if you are Allies than if you are ...
If you really want to turtle, Korea is a great choice. Both of their unique units are mainly useful for defending (the Hwatch'a rips units apart but is weak against cities, turtle ships are stronger than other Renaissance ships but can't explore the ocean), and their unique ability works best if you focus on your capitol over your other cities. By ...
