As far as US immigration is concerned, there is no problem with you spending several months in Canada. You can stay out of the US as long as you like. There is no limit. However, it is up to Canada how long you are allowed to stay there as a visitor.

You would still have to pay taxes in the US since you are a US citizen and earning money in the US. If you begin earning a salary outside the US then speak to a tax advisor so he/she can specify how much you would have to pay.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
