It is all determined by intent. If your intent in having the new practice is for it to be temporary (less then one year) then you have temporary living expenses. If your intent is for it to last more then one year then (even though your home and family may still be in the original county) you have established a new tax home. Your tax home and your principal residence do not have to be in the same place.

No, since you are not maintaining a home office in the rental house, the rental expense is not deductible.
