Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE so I can get credited for my time.
1. There are no specific requirements regarding this basis, you should ensure that whilst you have been outside of the UK you have maintained contact with your wife, so you should keep evidence of telephones, emails letters etc that you send to each other during the time you have spent apart. This is sufficient for her application for ILR.
2. Regarding your mother claiming benefits it would effect your wife's application as long as she is not claiming benefits on her name, or due to her your mother has to claim increased benefits.
I hope this answers your question, if so kindly rate my answer positively.
Thank you for your reply.
