My daughter has unsually long and heavy periods that can last 12 days or sometimes more. Is this normal? Can it be prevented?

In brief: See your doctor

This sounds too heavy.
Your daughter can be put on birth control pills to control her cycles. Other options exist as well. Please make an appointment with a gynecologist for evaluation.
