Moving to Switzerland and working in EU

Hey everyone!

Me and my boyfriend are from an EU country. He recently found a job in Switzerland (St. Gallen) and will be moving in a few weeks.

I would like to go with him, but I don't have a job in Switzerland yet, although I'm actively looking for one. I am working remotely on and for my EU country.

He already got a place for us there and apparently, since I am planning to live with him, my name needed to be in the contract (but I haven't signed it yet).

So my questions are the following:
  1. Can I go live with him in Switzerland and continue working remotely for my EU country while I find a new job?
  2. Do I still need to register at the canton within 14 days of arriving, or should I register only when I get a new job?
  3. Do I need to get a permit and if so what is the more appropriate?
  4. If I can't find a job within the time of the permit and have to return to my country, can I try to go back and find a job in Switzerland after a while? How much time do I have to wait?
  5. Will I need to get an health insurance within 3 months? (I saw on that there is an exception if working for EU, but I'm not sure)

Thank you in anticipation!
