Studying in the US Tax status?

Dear all,
Was hoping some knowledgeable expats with experience of such a scenario may be able to help?
Iíve been working in CH for the past few years and accumulated pensions here. Iím a British National.
Iím now going to the US to study for a year and will therefore be unemployed for the entire duration.

If I take my Swiss pension out in cash and deposit it somewhere - am I tax liable in the US (obvs would have had filed my tax returns here for the year)?

I read some funny things like even students on an F1 need to file some manner of return (which makes no sense to me).

Any advice on this would be great! Thank you!!
