What most people do in your case is to install a local IMAP server,
usually dovecot, on your local machine. Then use isync or offlineimap to
sync that to the remote server. Gnus only ever talks to the local IMAP

It's a little harder for offline sending. I use msmtp to send mails, and
apparently there is a msmtp-queue package that will let send emails from
Gnus, but queue them up until there's an internet connection to actually
send them.

Otherwise, you just use the Gnus agent, toggle unplugged, send as
usual, and when you're back online, toggle plugged.
