Working abroad on an H-4 visa

I hold an H-4 visa but I'll be going to university in Canada starting this fall, where I'm allowed to work. I'm planning on doing work online (like graphic design stuff) and getting paid in my US bank account. So I'll be physically present in Canada but my income would go to my US bank account.

Would I be violating the rules for maintaining my H-4 visa? Would that count as work in the US since the income would go to my US accounts?

P.S. is there a requirement on how many days per year I have to be physically present in the US? I'm worried that since I would be spending about 8 months per year in Canada, I would lose my H-4 visa.
