1) A green card is for someone who wishes to live in the US; if you aren't living in the US then you aren't entitled to a green card, since it isn't meant to be used as a tourist visa. If you permanently move to another country then your green card is gone.

2) By not being in the US you will not meet the physical presence requirements for the N-400.

You may be found to have abandoned your permanent resident status if you:

  • Move to another country intending to live there permanently

http://www.uscis.gov/green-card/after-green-card-granted/maintaining-permanent-residence

Traveling Outside of the United States

Permanent residence normally permits you to travel outside the
United States and to return; however, there are some limitations.
Lengthy absences, particularly if they involve work or taking up
residence abroad, can lead to abandonment and loss of permanent
residence status, or delayed eligibility for naturalization.
Absence
for 1 year or more can cause serious problems. Remember that, in
order to enter another country, you must comply with that country’s
requirements, which may include having your U.S. Permanent
Resident Card, obtaining a visa, or using your passport from your
country of nationality.
