If you spend more than 2 years outside the UK your ILR will certainly be revoked. However, you could apply for a Returning Residents visa if you can show strong family ties in the UK so that you can re-enter
Up to the end of that two year period the UKBA has a discretionary power to revoke your ILR. This generally is only exercise if a person spends between 3-6 months or over outside the UK in any one period, but provided you can show that your permanent life remains in the UK then they will usually not exercise their power to revoke Provided you come back to the UK every three months you should be fine in this regard. Regarding your children studying abroad you would have to check with each individual country in which they are to study. If your children are minors then their status in the UK stems from you, so if you are fine then so are they
