Pension Confusion

Hello everyone,
I am so confused and really struggling to make sense of my pension situation. Please bear with me as I explain as I am having sleepless nights trying to figure out who to speak to and how to go about sorting this all out.
My situation in a nutshell:
I am on a German Passport
I arrived in Switzerland to work at the start of 2012
I left to go back home (South Africa) end of 2014
I was paid out a cash amount as I was not going to an EU country
I was then offered another job in Switzerland near the end of 2015 and returned.
I have been working here ever since.
I am not sure how long I will still be here, BUT
If I leave in the next year or so to the UK where my family is now based, can I
1 - cash in pension again
2 - continue contributing
3 - "freeze it" and then claim
4 - how much would it be
etc etc etc
Who should I talk to in order to get a clear understanding on how this all works as the folks at work all seem as confused as I am
Thank you all for you patience
