Lars,

> Is it $50 even in months you are not in the US?

You can load money for your next trip when you want. (I just prefer to load money upfront, because I tend to forget how to do the loading… and it looks likely that I'll be here often).

> If yes, how long can you let it idle before it terminates?

There was a idle timeout, but I think it was some number of months, so you do not have to keep using it quite all the time.
