Leaving for extended leave without resetting the time needed to obtain C permit

Hi,

I come from an EU country and I have been living in Switzerland for 4 years.
I have been thinking about leaving Switzerland for 2-5 months on an unpayed leave (potentially cancelling my job contract and starting a new one upon returning ... which would allow to extend the leave to 5 months).
At the same time I wanted to return my apartment (as after returning I would like to rent a larger one and keeping empty apartment for 5 months sounds very wasteful, sub-renting for longer time with unknown exact return date sounds complicated and stressful as well).

Would you have some advice on whether it is possible not to reset the counter allowing to obtain C permit / citizenship ? I would not like to start new 12 waiting period after returning. I want to stay in Switzerland for longer, just need long holidays / want to go traveling.

Do you know what counts as uninterrupted stay in the country required for C permit? I am sure that leaving for 2 weeks holidays does not count. How long would be the maximal time?

Thanks for your advice.

You can leave for 6 months without losing your permit. However you need to remain registered in Switzerland. So that means you will need an address (you could probably register at the address of a friend if you give up your apartment) and you will have to keep paying health insurance.
