Can you use "het" in front of gerunds? "Ik heb geen geduld voor het verliezen"

Technically you can, but then it would refer to a specific occurrence. Since this sentence is a general statement, it wouldn't make sense here.

No, you could still be referring to the general statement. It would be context-bound
