> How practical is working over a modem or working from long distance?

Very. I've written manuals for PC products for two UK companies while
living in Holland. In both cases, software updates and drafts were sent
back and forth via modem. (Tip: get the fastest modem you can afford.)
The last two manuals I produced here for a Mac product were done entirely
from home -- the company was just beyond commuting distance (a round trip
of about three and a half hours); again, the modem proved its worth time and
time again.

You'll probably find that some companies actively encourage you to work
from home: they know you're far more productive. You'll find that others,
often those whose managers and supervisors have time to kill, will
be deliberately obstructive.
