I think if you want a visa to go into the USA for residency you need to pass the EE exam in Canada and have the Canadian Health write a letter.

Your days of absence will not be counted. You will lose the PR status if you stay beyond 3 yrs outside canada within that 5 yr period. But if you plan accordingly u will be able to stay atleast for 2 yrs in canada and get a PR renewal done.
