Many people with tie a strap to secure the bottle, just to be safe.
2 bubbles per second probably won't last for very long. You might be using too much yeast to start off so it is chowing through the sugar and will spend its supply rather quickly. How much yeast did you use?
If you absolutely had to vent some of the pressure, I would use a Tee and a needle valve to bleed off excess CO2, but that nasty Yeast smell would vent to your room. You're better off controlling bubble rate with initial yeast dosage. I use 1/4 tsp w 2 cups sugar in a 1 gallon container.
