Family B-permit enough to work/study?

Here we go again...

I'm a non-EU national working in CH (Zurich), and my wife has moved in with me. We both therefore have identical 1-year (renewable) B permits, with the exception that my permit has my employer address, and my wife has something like "living with husband".

The questions are:
1. Is this sufficient for her to study in a hochschule/uni?
2. Is this sufficient for her to work?
3. If 1. or 2. is "No", will the fact that she already has a residence permit be helpful towards getting a study/work permit?
4. What authority can further confirm this?

I couldn't find this in FAQ threads.

Thanks a lot,
Bohdan.

No

Marginally.

To the last point on Shorricks post - If I can be the authority I will confirm all that he has said although I would say a little more than marginally to point 3.

Not really, I expected something like "Migrationsamt, (043) 259-88-00". Unless you work there, of course. .

Again,
thanks a lot.
