You'll be required to produce the requested documents unless the case is dismissed before the deadline. If the court has taken no action on your motion and the time for the other party to respond has passed, you may want to file a Request for Hearing to see if you can get it on the docket. Once there's a hearing scheduled, you'll know if you need to file a Motion to Stay Discovery until after the Motion to Dismiss is heard. But right now, if you file nothing new and the judge doesn't rule on the Motion to Dismiss, you will have to reply to the discovery.

Discovery is supposed to include a due date for responses. If it doesn't say, it's 30 days after they make service. Florida Rules Civ. P., Rule 1.350.
Time to reply to motions depends on the local rules of your court. In most courts, it's 10 or 20 days, but check the court's website to see what they say.
