Married, permanent residence in Basel, working and temporary living in Lausanne

Hello All,

We are non-EU and I am on a family reunification visa in Switzerland (wife's B-permit starts in August and hence I can also start working). My wife is working in Aargau canton and we live in Basel.

I secured a job in Lausanne and I am going to have to spend 2 weeks a month (probably every alternate week) there. My wife will continue to stay in Basel and I plan to spend weekends and the other 2 weeks in Basel.

1. Can I keep Basel as my primary place of residence and also rent another small temporary apartment in Lausanne?
2. I am registered in the canton of Basel. Do I need to register with the canton in Lausanne if I rent there?
3. Where and how would I expect to be taxed (Basel or Lausanne, especially if I rent a temporary apartment in Lausanne)?

Thanks a lot for your input.
