I agree with the previous poster's assessment.
Just to clarify, while you are applying for both the 820 and 801 at the same time, it is the temporary visa (820) that will be assessed initially.
You must meet the relationship requirements at the time of application and all relevant evidence should relate to the period up to lodgement date.
Anything generated afterwards is evidence of an ongoing relationship, but not evidence of the relationship at time of lodgement.
The online working thing is a bit of a grey area and I am loathe to advise on it.
I suggest you draw up a list of pros and cons of both options and get someone to cast a professional eye over it. It is such an involved and emotional process, that it can be beneficial for an outsider to have an impartial look at it. Sometimes rational judgement can be clouded by wishful thinking.
